Police have released the name and photo of a person of interest who may be connected to a hit-and-run accident that left two people dead last week in Stamford.
Police have spoken with Felicia Burl, 32, on the phone, but they have been unable to find her and she is not cooperating in the investigation, officials said.
Stamford police have released a flier saying Burl is suspected of being the driver who ran a red light last Friday night, crashing into another car.
Three people were taken to Stamford hospital, and two of them died from their injuries.
Police say a female driver fled on foot before help arrived, and that their investigation places Burl at the scene of the crash.
"She has a significant family presence in Stamford and Bridgeport," Sgt. Andrew Gallagher said. "She previously resided in New Haven. We believe most of her ties are to lower Fairfield County or New Haven County, so we do feel strongly confident that she is in the area."
There is currently no warrant out for Burl's arrest, and she has not been charged in the incident.
Police are offering a $500 reward for any information that leads them to finding Burl.
