Tanicha Workman death: $4,000 offered for info on Cheltenham Township murder

TWP CHELTENHAM, Pennsylvania (WPVI) — A trip to the video game store more than 12 years ago ended in a fatal hit-and-run accident.

Now the family of the teenage victim is hoping you can help solve this case.

“She was really a loving person and gifted, very smart. And she would literally take her shirt off for anyone,” said Karen Garnett, the victim’s mother.

On Wednesday, April 7, 2010, 17-year-old Tanicha Workman had just finished her shift when her little brother asked her to take him to the mall to buy a video game.

Her family say Workman didn’t hesitate. They were on their way home when the unthinkable happened.

“I was in my room, it happened less than a block from where I live. I heard a big bang and I was like, ‘Oh my God,'” Garnett said.

At 10 p.m., Workman and her brother were crossing Cheltenham Avenue near 5th Street in Cheltenham Township when she was struck by a van and killed. The driver fled the scene of the crime.

The vehicle is described as a white, silver, or gray Chevy or GMC work truck with no windows and a ladder at the top.

The driver is said to have been a white or middle-aged Hispanic male.

Workman’s brother says she saved his life that night.

The Citizens Crime Commission is administering a $4,000 reward, including $2,500 from AAA Mid-Atlantic. This reward is for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible. All you have to do is call 215-546-TIPS, all calls remain anonymous.

“It is never too late. I just have a feeling that someone somewhere out there knows something. And if someone has children or a loved one, they would know how we’re feeling and how we’re suffering right now,” Garnett said.
