NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The family of a tourist who died after he was apparently hit by a car in the French Quarter and dragged more than six miles has posted a billboard near downtown New Orleans offering a $15,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.

“Who Killed Him?” reads the billboard facing traffic headed to the Westbank of the Mississippi River. Attorney Patricia Prezioso, who’s representing the family of 28-year-old Josh Woodruff, says they’re hoping it will help police advance the investigation.

Woodruff, an Omaha, Nebraska native, was hit around 3 a.m. New Years’ Day by a dark, four-door sedan with tinted windows. Prezioso says Woodruff’s family needs the community’s help in finding his killer. She says cars that hit and drag someone for miles don’t just disappear.

Anyone with information should contact Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111.
