EL PASO, TEXAS (KTSM) – Crime Stoppers of El Paso and EPPD are asking for help in identifying the driver who killed a 12-year-old child in a hit-and-run four years ago. 

Between the late night of Feb. 4, and the early morning of Feb. 5, 12-year-old Kianna Johnson who had autism, walked out of her home.  At approximately 1:30 a.m., the 12-year-old child was in the area of the Walmart at the 5600 block of Dyer.  Investigators believe that Kianna Johnson attempted to cross Dyer from the east curb to the west curb.
