Gerald "Jerry" Dunn
It's been five years since a twenty three year-old man was killed by a hit and run driver on Highway 14 at Tiffany Boulevard in Nixa, and his family still has no answers.

At about 1:30 a.m. on July 11, 2006, Nixa Police received a call about a body in the road just east of the intersection.  When authorities arrived they found Gerald "Jerry" Dunn dead.  However, there was no blood or other evidence at the scene.  

Detective Jason Hartsell says tire marks were visible on Dunn’s body and autopsy results confirmed the man had been run over.  “We are looking for any information we can get,” Hartsell says. “Someone out there knows something and needs to come forward.”

Investigators have determined that Dunn left a friend's house after an argument and that's where the trail turns cold - there not sure if Dunn was hit there or somewhere else and placed there, “We are investigating this case as a homicide due to the little information we have to go on,” Hartsell says. “However, we do not have any suspects.”

If you have any information that could help solve this crime you're asked to contact the Nixa Police Department at (417) 725-2510.
