Reward offered for information into March Shelbyville crash that killed young mother


SHELBY COUNTY (WTHR) - There is now a $5,000 reward posted in the death of a young mother.

25-year-old Heather Poe was killed March 24th in a multi-vehicle wreck on State Road 44 near Shelbyville.

Police say Poe and other motorists were taking evasive action because of two motorcyclists driving wrecklessly around the intersection at County Road 325 East, near I-74.

Heather Poe's vehicle crossed the center line and was hit by a pickup truck.

Witnesses say two men were driving the Harley-style cruising bikes westbound.

A store security camera near the crash scene got photos of the two bikes. At least one of them had a thin female passenger on the back in a florescent sweatshirt.

If you have information on the motorcyclists call the Shelby County Sheriff's Department at 317-398-6661.

Her family says the reward is for arrest and conviction of anyone found responsible for her death.

Heather Poe had a four year-old daughter, JoJo. Family says Heather had just dropped her off moments before the crash, or JoJo may have been killed, too.
