Rudy-Credit Family

We are sharing this from Christina, their family still seeks justice in the hit and run death of their brother Rudy. Rudy Rodriguez was killed on Aug. 27, 1999.

Christina states, “16 years ago, our family lost one of our brothers to a terrible hit and run motorcycle accident. At the time he was a single father raising his 3 younger sons, Ramon, Reuben, Ricardo and had 2 older sons, Rudy and Ricky.

They still have not caught the “person” (I choose not to call him a man because he is a coward). This coward was arrested the night of the accident but was released the next morning by posting the $5,000 cash bond and since then has disappeared. His name is Francisco Javier Gonzalez Cruz DOB 12/03/66 or 12/03/64. He has outstanding warrants for his arrest for the following: HIT & RUN Causing Death, Bail Jumping, Operating Under the Influence, Driving After Revocation and Fail/Yield Right Of Way. He is from Mexico and we have had confirmation that he went back to his homeland but over the years have had information that he was back in the United States.

Please if you know anything, know any of these people or know the whereabouts of this coward please please call your local authorities. All we want is justice for our family so we can finally have closure. Thank you!”

If anyone has any information that could provide some answers they are asked to contact the Racine Police Department. Your anonymous leads and comments to the Racine Police Department through an email directly to the Investigations Bureau or Crime Stoppers.
