Police in New Jersey are back at the scene of a deadly hit-and-run from two years ago, canvassing the area for new leads and stopping cars and handing out fliers at a checkpoint in North Bergen.
Omar Monroig was killed crossing the street at Tonnelle Avenue and 51st Street, and on the two-year anniversary of his death, family members and police were back at the scene, passing out fliers under the pouring rain in the hopes someone will be able to offer new clues.
"We're never giving up," said Jorge Monroig, the victim's brother.
"I really can't understand how you sleep at night," he said. "You took the life of a human being. And you didn't just take anybody, you took someone who's really special."
Omar was 42, an amateur bodybuilder and a husband and father. His brother says he was known for his kindness.
"He helped out at the soup kitchen, he gave blood almost monthly," he said. "Omar helped out a lot of people."
The driver of a 2001 to 2004 blue Toyota Camry struck Monroig so hard he was tossed 100 feet. The driver, seen on video, didn't stop.
"The goal is to give the family some closure," said North Bergen Police Captain William Lyons. "We've been with them. We need information."
Family and friends are offering $20,000 for information leading to an arrest.
