The 54-year-old victim was identified as Alexis Curbelo and it is believed he was homeless.
On December 18th, Nance came to the Port St. Lucie Police Department after hearing about the hit and run.

Nance continued to her residence and did not call 911 at the time. Officers went to Nance’s residence and recovered the vehicle involved in the fatal hit and run. Since December, Traffic Homicide Investigators have been thoroughly investigating the incident and obtained the arrest warrant yesterday for Nance.
