A $2,500 reward is being offered for information about the death of a Napa teen in October, a police sergeant said today. Ramon Ramirez, 17, was found bleeding from the head in the middle of Pear Tree Lane near Villa Lane around 11:30 p.m. Oct. 14, police said. Ramirez was taken to Queen of the Valley Medical Center where he died after he was removed from life support, Sgt. Paul Paniagua said.
Police believed Ramirez was the victim of a hit-and-run because there was no indication he was riding a bicycle or skateboard at the time, Paniagua said.”The investigation into exactly what happened has come to a standstill as no eyewitnesses or responsible person has come forth,” Paniagua said.
It’s unknown how Ramirez suffered his injuries and a cause has not been determined, Paniagua said. Napa Valley Crime Stoppers is providing a $1,000 reward and the Ramon Ramirez Reward Fund is offering $1,500 to the first person who provides information that leads to the resolution of the case, Paniagua said. Ramirez, a senior at Vintage High School, was on the soccer team.
