WEST CHESTER, Ohio — West Chester police have located the driver of a white Ford Edge SUV they believe was involved in a pedestrian fatality after a woman found dead along a road on Sunday night.

The coroner's office said Sherry Haywood, 46, of Cincinnati, died from multiple traumatic injuries.

A security guard called West Chester police at 3:37 p.m. Sunday and reported finding a woman dead. Haywood was found on the side of Muhlhauser Road, just west of State Route 747, police said. Police said they estimate she was killed 12 hours before her body was discovered.

The area in which Haywood was walking when she was allegedly hit and killed has no sidewalks; West Chester police said Haywood enjoyed taking long walks in the evening.

On Thursday, police said they were looking for the driver of a white Ford Edge SUV, model year 2007 through 2011. The vehicle, shown in surveillance footage, had damage to its headlight and bumper on the front passenger side.

On Friday, police announced they'd found the vehicle at an apartment complex in Springdale. They have not released the identity of the driver, nor have they announced any charges.

Anyone with information should call West Chester police at 513.777.7270.
