Officers located the vehicle unoccupied a short time later.

The victim was pronounced deceased at the scene. The victim was an exchange student studying in Canada for the last four months.

  • Flight From Peace Officer

This tragic loss of one our community members is another somber reminder that criminals who have repeatedly shown a disregard for human life and for the courts,  have no place in our communities.
