Hit and run death: Anguished mum's plea to find driver
THE distraught mum of a hit and run victim has pleaded with the driver to hand themselves in to police, revealing the anguish that hangs with her every moment of the day.
Joanne Parker, 48, from Bourne End, said she had been changed forever by the devastating death of her son Marc Williams.
The Marlow Rugby Club player, who grew up in Marlow Bottom, was killed aged just 22 last December.
The family are desperate for information about his death, with no leads after a nine month investigation.
She told the Free Press: "Nothing will ever be the same, we will never be the same people again. I suppose our one real question is why or how someone could just hit someone drive away.
"I would like to say to somebody why and how could you hit someone and leave them to bleed to death on the side of the road?
"Really we just want someone to come forward and put their hand up because I just don't know how someone can live with it and have it on my conscience.
"After all this time if you've done something like that I'm sure you must've unburdened yourself to someone.
"Maybe not straight away but after they realised what they've done. So we're really hoping that after all of this time somebody will think 'I ought to come forward'. I don't know how they live with it and we are dealing with the after-shock."
She explained how deeply she misses her son, who was a carer at the epilepsy centre in Chalfont St Peter.
"He had a heart of gold, you couldn't ask for a better son, you really couldn't," she said.
"He was well loved by everybody he worked with, his friends, his family, he was one in a million and he was a pure angel. What I miss most is his giggle and his smile - he could light up a room with laughter. He was my best friend."
She said she felt important to speak out bucks free press to try to make the culprit realise what they've done to the family The inquest will take place on October 10.
Mrs Parker, a personal assistant, of Hedsor Road, said: "We're going to have to relive the whole event all over again. It's the first thing you think of in the morning and the last when you get sleep and all of the time in between.
"We will live with it for the rest of our lives, there is no closure."
She added: "The police have done an absolutely marvellous job I have to say that helping is only so much to they can do we hope the public can help finish it off."
The family believes the driver may have come from outside the area and are trying to widen the search and get the message out as far across the country as possible.
A REWARD of £1,000 offered to help find the suspected hit and run driver responsible for Marc Williams' death has yet to yield any new information.
Last week charity Crimestoppers put up the four figure sum to aid his family's search fro justice.
Police have repeated the appeal, reminding people of the circumstances on the night he died.
Mr Williams was found lying in the southbound entry slip of the A404M at Cox Green on December 1. Mr Williams died from his injuries en route to Wexham Park Hospital.
It is believed the crash occurred between about 2.15am and 2.30am. The vehicle did not stop at the scene. Officers have asked to speak to the drivers or passengers in a silver Vauxhall Astra, possibly a mark 5, and a black Mercedes E or C class five-door saloon, believed to be a taxi, who they thought may have vital information. They have not come forward.
They were seen to turn into Shoppenhangers Road from King Street around 2.20am. Anyone with information can contact Sgt Walton or PC Julia Stroud on the 24-hour police non-emergency number 101.
