BORING, OR (KPTV) -

Deputies are seeking information about a man's whereabouts in connection to a hit-and-run case that resulted in a woman's body being found on the side of the road.

The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office said Brian Schaffer, 53, of Estacada is not considered a suspect at this time, however criminal charges have not been ruled out pending the results of the investigation.

Detectives had sought details about a Ford F-150 work truck with a full-size ladder rack after Katherine Rusk, 38, of Astoria, was found dead on the side of Southeast 282nd Avenue and Haley Road in Boring on Thursday morning.

Investigators believe she was hit early Wednesday evening.

An autopsy confirmed that Rusk died from head trauma after being hit by a vehicle.

On Monday, detectives identified Schaffer as the driver of the truck they were seeking more information about. Detectives spoke with Schaffer and executed multiple search warrants, but no further details were released about the investigation.

Deputies are now seeking information from the public about Schaffer's whereabouts on Wednesday, March 2, and Thursday, March 3. A DMV photo of Schaffer and a photo of the truck were released by the sheriff's office.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the sheriff's office tip line at 503-723-4949 or online at web3.clackamas.us/contact/tip.jsp and reference case #16-5803.

Family members told FOX 12 they don't know why Rusk was in the Boring area. She is a mother of two who has battled personal problems, they said, but was described as funny and goofy.
