Jennifer Castro is looking for closure, after her daughter, Dominique Tanguma was killed August 3.

Castro spoke to 23ABC Tuesday night about her daughter's death saying wants whoever hit her, to come forward.

Tanguma, 24, was arguing with her boyfriend around 1:30 a.m. near Frazier Mountain Park Road and Lakewood Place near Lake of the Woods, according to Fort Tejon CHP. She laid down on the asphalt in the intersection, and was struck and killed by a car seconds later, CHP said.

CHP is looking for the car that drove off after killing Tanguma. The suspect's car is believed to be a green box-type vehicle, possibly a Kia. 

Castro said Tanguma was well-known in the Frazier Park area and thinks someone might have information about her death. Anyone with information is asked to call Fort Tejon CHP at 661-248-6655.
