They have a suspicion who is responsible, but don’t have enough evidence to charge them.
That’s why the Vancouver Police Department, and the family of 30 year old skateboarder Ryan Barron, are pleading for the public’s help identifying the suspect in a fatal hit-and-run.
Wearing t-shirts that say “justice for Ryan,” and his mother holding his beloved Barron skateboard, family members of 30 year old Ryan Barron packed VPD HQ, tearfully pleading for the public to come forward with information to identify the driver who killed him.
His aunt, Lynn Stuart, begs for anyone with information to come forward.
“To anyone out there who has information about the hit and run accident on April 17th 2016 that took the life of my beloved nephew, you too might be in my family’s situation and never would you have imagined the pain and heartbreak because of the fact that people are not coming forward.”
The vehicle was found by police shortly after.
It wasn’t stolen and while police have a suspicion of who the suspect is, they say they need more evidence to make an arrest.
At the time of the crash, Barron’s employer RAW rolling papers posted a $25,000 reward for any information that would lead to a successful prosecution.
