Cape Coral Police Locate Vehicle From Deadly GA Hit-And-Run

(October 29, 2013)-  The Cape Coral Police Department has located a RV that was involved in a deadly chain-reaction crash outside of Atlanta, GA last Saturday.

The Cape Coral Police Department received a request from the Marietta Police Department to attempt to locate a vehicle that was involved in a fatal hit and run crash.  The vehicle, a white Dutch Star motor home, was located by a Patrol unit at 720 SE 4th Terrace, Cape Coral, FL.  
The suspect in the hit and run, a Canadian Citizen who owns property in Cape Coral, has reportedly returned to Atlanta to turn himself in to authorities.
A Cape Coral Police Department Traffic Homicide Investigator responded to the scene where the vehicle was located.  The RV was towed and is being held at the Cape Coral Police Department Evidence compound.  Law enforcement personnel from GA are en route to process the vehicle for their investigation.
 "Teamwork, regardless of jurisdictional boundaries, made the difference in this case.  Good intelligence provided by the Marietta PD investigators, coupled with tenacity of our Patrol Bureau to follow-up and locate the vehicle, preserved evidence and will hopefully assist with a successful prosecution."- Det. Sergeant Dana Coston, Cape Coral Police Department Public Affairs Officer.
