Enhanced surveillance video is breathing new life into the hit-and-run death of an Oklahoma mother killed in March.

It happened in Seminole County.

“Our sincere hope is that the one someone, whether it's the driver who didn't know about it will reach out,” said Faithe’s mother Amanda Langston.

OSBI and Faithe Ely's family are hopeful the enhanced video will lead them to the driver that killed the young mother.

“Somebody needs to stand up and be accountable and understand how this affected not just her family but a lot of people who knew her,” said Langston.

In March, 23-year-old Ely was walking along Highway 56 south of 270 in Seminole County when she was hit by a vehicle and left to die.

Investigators initially released a video of the truck believed to have been in the area where Ely was killed. Then last week, OSBI enhanced it.

It's led to more clues.

“It is a four-door light-colored truck, the trailer has lights on it, it has a lift gate in the back,” said Langston.

Langston said the tips have rolled in.

“No matter what the tip is they're going to run it down, they were able to get more tips,” said Langston.

Faithe's mother said while the driver of the truck may not be responsible for her daughter's death, they could have answers.

The driver to say hey, that's my truck, I was there, if the driver didn't know,” said Langston.

Until someone comes forward Faithe's family won't stop.

“We can’t accept sitting here and doing nothing, we just can’t accept that. We have to do everything we can to find out what happened that night,” said Langston.
