Hit-and-run death: Irsay, McAfee contribute to reward

Boone County — Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay and player Pat McAfee didn’t know Anita Wernsing, any members of her family, or anyone connected with the Boone County Sheriff’s Office.

Something about Wernsing’s Nov. 25 hit-and-run death on a two-lane Boone County highway touched them, though, and they have donated $15,000 — $10,000 from Irsay, $5,000 from McAfee — to help find the person who left the 78-year-old Wernsing dead at the side of the road.

Monday, two of Wernsing’s granddaughters and the husband of her youngest daughter thanked Irsay and McAfee, and asked that someone help them find their grandmother’s killer.
