NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — New Haven police have released a years-old security video they hope can help track down a potential witness to an unsolved hit-and-run accident that killed an 11-year-old girl in 2008.
The New Haven Register reports (http://bit.ly/WiVpEm) that police are trying to identify a bicyclist seen riding near the accident that killed Gabrielle Lee. Police theorize the bicyclist may have been trying to catch up to the suspect’s vehicle as it fled.
But they say they’re not just looking for the bicyclist, but anyone who might have seen something, or who has information.
Lee was killed while crossing the street to help her mother carry clean clothes from a Laundromat near her home. Her brother witnessed the accident.
Lee’s father says the family wants justice.
