BOZEMAN -

Montana Highway Patrol officials say the woman who called 911 to report finding a body part at a Livingston car wash is not a suspect in the Interstate 90 hit and run that killed one man.

Monday afternoon, law enforcement and Montana Highway Patrol were called to the Super Car Wash in Livingston after a body part was found.

Officers confirmed the body part belonged to 81-year-old Elgie Bedford from Wasilla, Alaska, who was hit and killed by a vehicle on I-90 near Big Timber.

The vehicle of the woman who called police was taken in as protocol, but was later released.

"There's no evidence of any kind of collision damage or any other kind of evidence on that vehicle or that person," said Bill Bullock with the Montana Highway Patrol.

Bedford's wife says he was making his annual drive to Texas to visit his children and grandchildren when he was struck and killed.

If you have any information about this crime, you are asked to call Sweet Grass Sheriff's Office or Montana Highway Patrol.

    KHQ.COM - Mid August is about the time that we start to see spiders come into our homes, particularly the hobo spider. August and September is mating season for the hobo and that means you may be seeing more funnel-like webs in and around your home. Males are on a mission to find a female which is why they are a lot more active at this time.
