COLESBURG, Ky. (WHAS11) -- A Bullitt County woman left clues for a neighbor that she might be killed.  Christy Dickerson was struck and killed by a semi truck on Interstate 65, and police are trying to figure out how she ended up alone in the middle of the interstate. 

A police report from the Bullitt County Sheriff's Department says that Christy Dickerson called her neighbor the last night she was alive and left her a voicemail message that instructed her  please call Dickerson’s parents if anything happened.  Detective Scotty Magaha of the Bullitt County Sheriff's Department says “There is a call made where she is screaming, there is a call in there where she talks about she can't move so obviously there are a lot of questions we need to get answered.”
  

Dickerson left another message that said she was so scared that she bit her fingernails to leave her DNA in the floor board of the vehicle she was last in.  Her sister says “I think they put her out like she was a piece of trash.”  The shock is wearing off and the truth is settling in for Christy's sister, who did not want to be identified. 
  

Christy was struck and killed by a semi on Interstate 65 on August 26 in Colesburg, Ky.  Her family thinks the men she was with either drugged her or physically harmed her so she couldn't get away.
  

Now Bullitt County Police are releasing a surveillance video of Christy with two men at the Pilot truck stop in Brooks the day she died.  In the video, you can see the blue and gray pickup truck, you can see the men get out of the truck and later Christy, in the pink hat, walks up to them.  Detective Magaha says “At some point, according to some witnesses, there was money exchanged, possibly for some pills.”
  

Police say these were the last men who saw her alive and they are considered persons of interest, but have not been charged.  Magaha says the all three left the Pilot and reconnected later in the day at her apartment before she was killed.  Magaha says “We believe they probably consumed some alcohol and we don't know what else happened, that’s why we want to talk to these two males, these persons of interest .”
  

Now police and Christy's family just want answers. The men police are looking for are not facing any charges, but police want to talk to them.  If you have any information about this case you are urged to call the Bullitt County Sheriff's Deparment at (502) 955-7804.
