Janet Elaine Hinds: Photos, Full Story & Must-See Details


The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is currently searching for 54-year-old Janet Elaine Hinds for her role in the alleged vehicular homicide of 38-year-old police officer Nicholas Galinger.

According to a statement given by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, Galinger — a 38-year-old officer who had just graduated from the police academy in January — was hit and killed by a vehicle while responding to a call in Hixson, Chattanooga on Saturday, February 23.

Specifically, Galinger was inspecting a leaking manhole cover around 11 p.m. on February 23 when a 2017 or 2018 Honda CRV, believed to be driven by Hinds, struck him.

Police now say they believe that vehicle was driven by Hinds and have added her to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Top 10 Most Wanted List following the alleged vehicular homicide.

Following the crash, Hinds — who was reportedly “traveling at a very high speed in poor weather conditions” — fled the scene while Galinger was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

Additionally, police said that Hinds failed to render aid and left the scene at a high rate of speed.

While speaking to reporters, Chattanooga police Chief David Roddy said that “the department, this community lost not just an officer but a son, a father, a friend and a protector.”

Investigators have asked anyone who believes they have potential information about Hinds or her whereabouts to contact authorities at 1-800-TBI-FIND immediately. At this time, a reward of up to $2,500 is being offered for information that leads to Hinds’ arrest.
