Investigators Get Break In Hit-Skip Case
Investigators looking into a hit-skip accident that killed a Central Ohio high school teacher say they have a break in the case.
Ohio State Highway Patrol investigators say they have a suspect in the hit-skip bike accident that killed long-time DeSales High School teacher and coach Bob Lennon.
Lieutenant Anne Ralston speaks for the Highway Patrol.
â€œItâ€™s a female suspect; however, we have not arrested her. No charges have been filed at this point. Weâ€™re working very closely with the prosecutorâ€™s office there in Delaware County,” Ralston said. “â€œWe got two big pieces to the puzzle we think, [Thursday] night, with being able to identify the vehicle. And also we have a suspect. But the investigation is going to move forward, and when we get it to a point where we present it to the prosecutor at that point in time it will be considered for charges.â€
Ralston said a family member of the suspect notified authorities about a grey car with severe damage matching police description. The car was taken from a residence on Miller-Paul Road. Lennon was struck from behind and killed on the same road in southeastern Delaware County Sunday.
