BOONVILLE, Mo. — The family of a South Dakota woman who was found shot to death in Missouri last winter is offering a $10,000 reward for information in the case.
Forty-year-old Melissa Peskey, of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, was found dead on Interstate 70 near Boonville in December 2018.
Her two children, ages 5 and 11, were alive in the backseat.
An autopsy indicated she had been killed by a shot fired from outside her vehicle.
In an interview with “Dateline,” in April, Penskey’s sister, Kara Renken, said she was talking to Penskey on the phone about a vehicle that was swerving all over the road and a semi that had gone into the ditch before she went silent.
Missouri State Highway Patrol Troop F posted the reward information Friday.
