Troopers Identify Person of Interest in Delaware Co. Fatal Hit-and-Run Case
DELAWARE COUNTY (Ken Hines) -- Investigators have identified a person of interest in connection with the hit-and-run death of a bicyclist, while also finding a vehicle that may have been involved in the crash.
A Delaware County father told investigators his daughter was behind the wheel of a gray 2005 Chrysler Sebring when it fatally struck Robert Lennon on September 15 on Miller Paul Road.
Troopers believe Lennon was hit from behind while riding his bike, or resting on the side of the road.
The father told investigators his daughter initially claimed a deer caused extensive damage to the Sebring on September 15, but she eventually admitted to him that she struck a person on Miller Paul Road.
Troopers have been granted warrants to search the Sebring, the family's home, and the father's place of business, where he allegedly discarded a portion of the car's damaged windshield.
Investigators said Thursday they are looking into the possibility that a second vehicle may have been following the car that struck Lennon. No arrests have been made in connection with Lennon's death.
Lennon, 64, spent more than 40 years at DeSales, where he worked as a science teacher and cross country coach. His funeral was held at the school on Thursday.
