Shirra Branum’s family eyes new legislation for DUI drivers

Local

Today marks exactly two years since a local woman was killed in a tragic drunk driving crash.  

To this day, Shirra Branum’s family is still fighting to find the man responsible for her death.  

Alan Jacob Mogollon-Anaya is accused of being behind the wheel when Shirra was killed while he was driving under the influence.  

Police say he left the hospital before the warrant for his arrest could be carried out.  

Investigators are still searching for him and within the past month, Mogollon-Anaya was placed on the ICE “Most Wanted Fugitives” list.  

Shirra’s family says they have not been able to properly grieve for her, knowing the man responsible for his death is still out there.  

“That does give us a little more hope at least we know ICE officials all across the united states are looking for him,” said Cindy Scalf, Shirra’s mother. “But as far as looking for her killer, it feels like it’s been an eternity.” 

Shirra’s mom is meeting with lawmakers this month to push for a new law that would allow officers to test for intoxication levels at the scene of a crash.
