The suspected driver’s mother told police her son called her on the phone and confessed to striking the girl with the vehicle and fleeing in panic. 

Police learned that Brown Deer Police officers stopped the vehicle on three separate occasions the day before the fatal hit and run. On each traffic stop, the Porsche was driven the defendant’s boyfriend.

The defendant stated that she stopped her vehicle with the engine running and exited to secure the rear hatch. The defendant stated that while she was doing this, someone jumped into the driver’s seat and drove off without her consent.

Crowder eventually admitted to police that she lied.
