“You have no idea what you have done to our family, you have ripped us apart, he was my son, and the pain is unbearable.”

Those are the tough emotional words from a broken mother after her son was killed following a hit-and-run collision in Romsey.

Joe Godden, 28 from Romsey (pictured) was a kind, loving and gentle man who would do anything to help anyone. A hole has been left in everyone who knew him, and a bid to find the vehicle involved remains ongoing.

Joe was killed in a fatal incident on Winchester Hill (A3090), Romsey, late on the night of Thursday, April 11.

Hampshire police launched an appeal and said it’s believed that a vehicle, which didn’t remain at the scene, was involved in the incident.

28-Year-Old Joe was found with serious injuries near to The Sun Inn pub, shortly after 11pm.

Despite the best efforts of paramedics, he was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

Now Joe’s mum Janette Godden has said:

“From a heartbroken mother, please someone must know something, and if it was you, you have no idea what you have done to our family, you have ripped us apart, he was my son, and the pain is unbearable; he was only 28 and had his whole life in front of him, have some decency; and at least now, do the right thing and come forward!!!!!”

Hampshire police have said:

“An investigation into the exact circumstances surrounding the incident is underway and enquiries are ongoing.

The police would like to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time of this incident.
