A year ago, on October 10, Cody Severight died because of a hit and run accident. A policeman was charged with the death of the guy.
A year has passed since the accident. The boy's family and many of his friends came to the place of his death and brought flowers. Relatives say they do not want residents in the city to forget about what happened that terrible day. Many people also brought pictures of the boy and lit the lights.
The grandmother of the deceased said that it is very difficult for her to pass by that place and come there because every time she remembers the tragedy and her heart is bleeding. The woman also said that the family misses the guy every day, but their pain is worth to come to the place and honor his memory. Such a tragedy should not have happened in their family, he was too young.
We want to recall the details of the incident.
A former police officer made several traffic violations that caused the death of the 23-year-old boy. In addition, the man did not stop and fled the crime scene.
After that the man was detained, but he was released on bail. He was fired from his job. During the last year, the family of the deceased went to court to look into the eyes of the guy’s killer, and see that justice really exists. However, he did not attend court sessions. The lawyer spoke on his behalf.
Next year, the court is finally going to pass a sentence.
