Ontario police are doubling their reward for information connected to the 2011 death of teenager Jessica Godin.
Godin’s body was found in a ditch in Fournier, Ont., about 80 kilometres east of Ottawa, on Sept. 24, 2011.
Police said autopsy results indicated she had been killed in a hit-and-run collision.

A $50,000 reward was offered by the OPP in 2012 for anyone giving information that leads to an arrest or conviction.
Thursday, they announced an additional $50,000 is being added to the reward courtesy an anonymous donor's donation to Montreal-based organization Sun Youth. Police also said they have conducted 90 interviews in the search for the driver that struck Godin.
OPP say after offering the original reward they had few pieces of physical evidence from the scene, but later seized a Dodge Ram truck they said was connected to her death.
A 2011 OPP YouTube video said Godin had last been seen the evening of Sept. 22, 2011 on Du Parc Street in Fournier, nearly two days before her body was found the afternoon of Sept. 24.
