At a press conference at the Fort St. John RCMP detachment on Friday afternoon, Constable Jackelynn Passarell repeated her plea, that the driver responsible for Tuesday’s hit and run turn him or herself in to police.

Constable Passarell stated that although police have been checking vehicles matching the description given by suspects, they have not yet tracked down the one that struck and killed 14 year-old Teddy Luo.

Passarell hopes further witness interviews will help police narrow down precisely what type of vehicle they should be searching for. At this point, the description is still of a red ‘mid-sized’ vehicle, that was probably not a truck or small car.

She also says police have been working with businesses in the area of the accident, to review surveillance tapes that may contain clues. But she says there is so much video available, police haven’t been able to comb through it all yet.

Passarrel also addressed the occurrence of vandalism in Fort St. John, after several cases of graffiti urging the driver of the hit-and-run to come forward. She says the community is clearly upset, but insists the vandalism is the wrong way to get the message across.

Passarell also reiterated her desire for all witnesses to the accident to come forward.
