DELAWARE, Ohio (WTVN) -- Investigators have a vehicle and suspect from a deadly hit-skip crash on Sunday in Delaware County.
Thursday evening the suspect's family called a Delaware County Sheriff's deputy about the crash.
"I think it's accurate to say that there were some relationships there and that probably included making a phone call to him in particular," said Delaware County Sheriff Russ Martin.
Authorities wouldn't talk about what was said during the call, but a search warrant says the suspect's family had called to ask the deputy if the damage was consistant with hitting a deer and were told it was not. The suspect then confessed to hitting a person.
A gray Chrysler Sebring was taken from a home on Miller Paul Road, not far from where Robert Lennon was hit while riding his bicycle Sunday afternoon. It was processed at the Delaware Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol and later taken to another facility in Columbus.
"We'll be processing the remainder of the evidence, sending it off for further analysis, and very much working closely with the prosecutor's office on where we go with this," said Ohio State Highway Patrol Staff Lt. Anne Ralston.
The suspect has not yet been charged. Ralston wouldn't speculate as to when charges or what charges might be filed.
Lennon, a teacher and coach at St. Francis DeSales High School, was laid to rest Thursday.
