Investigators said Sunday that the crash likely was a hit-and-run, leaving Leslie Jordan dead and her family grieving.

The cause of her death is still under investigation. It’s still unclear why she was on the road early Sunday and why she got out of the car in the middle of the roadway.
But police do have some answers. The vehicle Jordan was driving was stolen, police said.
Police are working with investigators on the police department and the FBI to try and determine how the teen was killed. The FBI has launched its own investigation.
‘This is an absolutely horrific situation for her family and her friends’
It was the first of many headlines that were not related to the crash victim.
It started with an obituary notice last week for a man who had been arrested in relation to a deadly car crash in April 2014. The man is now charged with killing his best friend, Leslie Jordan.
It ended with a picture of Jordan lying in the grass alongside a police truck with flames on its hood. The fire was later determined to have been caused by a vehicle that was stolen from a parking lot just miles from where Jordan died.
On Saturday, dozens of Jordan’s family members took to Facebook to mourn her death.
