BAXTER COUNTY, AR (KAIT) -

More than a month after a 63-year-old Mountain Home man was killed in a hit-and-run, Baxter County sheriff’s detectives continue to search for clues.

Douglas A. Foreman was hit and killed on Nov. 3 while riding his bicycle on Old Military Road.

Since then, the sheriff’s department has received approximately 100 tips from citizens relating to the incident.

Sheriff John Montgomery said Tuesday, Dec. 22, that investigators have narrowed the timeline and believe the incident occurred between 10:55 and 11:15 p.m.

Investigators have also determined that fog was not present at the time but occurred much later in the early morning hours of Nov. 4.

Evidence collected at the scene and from Foreman’s body were sent to the Arkansas State Crime Laboratory in Little Rock and to the FBI Forensics Laboratory in Quantico, VA.

Montgomery said FBI lab results indicate paint from the scene is a “dark teal green metallic color, part of which is believed to have come from a vinyl wrap, bumper sticker, logo, or other similar type of material.”

Detectives are currently analyzing data received from cell phone towers in the area.

Meanwhile, a reward leading to the arrest of the person responsible for Foreman’s death has increased to $5,365.

Initially a group of private citizens offered a reward of $500 for information leading to an arrest in the case.

Anyone with information who would like to receive the reward while remaining anonymous should contact the Baxter County Sheriff’s Office in one of the following ways:
