A Mother's Plea for Closure
For Information Sought in Fatal Hit-and-Run.
Debra Hochstetler wants to know who killed her son.
Debra Hochstetler is the mother of Richard Hochstetler, the 17 year old who was killed by a hit and run driver on Sunday January 10, 1999, along County Highway CR in Manitowoc County. "I want to make a plea to ANYONE who knows any information or to the person responsible - please come forward," she says. "It's not going to bring Ricky back, but we would like some answers and help, I want to know why someone would leave my baby and not check on him and see if he's dead or not," she says.
Debra Hochstetler recalls the night: She had dropped her son off at a friend's house to watch movies. Although he had a midnight curfew and said he would get a ride home with a friend, he often walked or biked from Manitowoc to their home just North of Natural Ovens. Debra Hochstetler was awakened at 4:30 a.m. by the sound of pounding on the door. She thought it was Ricky, that he had forgotten his key. Instead, it was law enforcement officers and the coroner.
