Memphis, TN -- Self Defense or Murder? The woman who hit and killed her ex-boyfriend says it's time for the truth to come out.

Vincent Scullark died after being hit by a car driven by his ex-girlfriend on August 20th in Highland Heights. 

In an exclusive interview with localmemphis.com, that woman, who didn't want to be identified because she says she's been threatened, says she had no choice.

"I didn't mean to hurt him like that I just didn't want him to hurt me," the woman said Friday evening. 

The woman said she was driving down the street when she spotted Scullark running towards her car with a large brick in his hand.

"I am not a cold hearted person like people are portraying me," she said. "But if I have to defend myself."

The woman said her car can't go into reverse, so she had no choice but to hit Scullark. She said she stopped her car and got out, but left the scene because she said she had to go get her child.

"I didn't have nothing to hide, I didn't ask for no attorney, I wanted to tell them exactly what happened," she said. 

Investigators found her car nearby a short time later. 

The woman said she wasn't trying to hide the car, rather it stopped working so she walked home. 

"I was praying they found the car, because I knew the car, they needed the car," she said.

"I feel like it was a murder," said Vivian Scullark, Vincent's mother. "There's no peace with me because my son is gone and he is never be coming back."

"It is like an emptiness, we really don't feel like it was no justice done for me," she added.

The woman says police grilled her, but she was never charged. A spokesperson with the Shelby County District Attorney's Office said there wasn't enough evidence to proceed.

"They told me my son was, had a big brick," Scullark said, recounting a conversation with prosecutors. "They said he had a brick and she feared for her life, and she ran over him."

The woman said she still loves Vincent and has struggled since his death. 

Scullark said she didn't buy that.

"How could you leave someone that you love so much or whatever, and leave them in the street didn't knock on the door or say 9-1-1," Scullark said.

Scullark says she's planning a march for Sunday morning, hoping to raise awareness so prosecutors will re-examine her son's case.
