Authorities Still Need Help In Hit And Run Case

Authorities Still Need Help In Hit And Run Case
NEAR SISSESTON, SD -

Law enforcement is still asking for your help to solve a hit and run case that killed a Sisseton man.

It was along a state highway north of Sisseton 27-year-old A.J. Four Star's body lay earlier this month. But authorities still don't know who was behind what they're calling a hit and run that killed the father of two.

"I hope they do find him because the family needs some closure and they need to know what happened," Ricardo Rodriques Fuentes said.

A bus driver from Tiospa Zina Tribal School found Four Star by this bridge. That driver said he didn't even know if he was looking at a human body at first because it was in such bad condition.

The highway patrol is asking anyone with information to contact them and help move the case forward.

Someone let Four Star out of a vehicle at 2 a.m. April 9. The bus driver found him four hours later.

Fuentes was good friends with Four Star and is waiting to hear anything.

"Well I hope they come forward because it would be the right thing to do. In my opinion, to do something like that and to walk away and not do anything there's something seriously wrong," Fuentes said.

Family members have already honored Four Star at the place his body was found.

A ribbon hanging along the bridge's rail also reminds anyone who sees it how many unanswered questions remain.

"By coming forward you're going to put closure to your family. And you can also put closure to yourself," Fuentes said.

According to the Highway Patrol, they're haven't been recent developments in the case. But the Patrol Captain in the area says information from the public could help piece things together.

The Division of Criminal Investigation and the Roberts County Sheriff are also investigating.
