DENVER (CBS4) – The first break in the case of a cyclist killed by a hit-and-run driver came over the weekend.
Police in Denver over the weekend released surveilance images that show a semi in the area where a man was killed last month. David Pickett was found dead on May 16, only a day or two after his 50th birthday party.
Pickett was riding his bike to work early in the morning when someone hit him and left the scene. It happened at 46th and Josephine.
The video may be grainy and dark but family members are holding on to the fact that it’s their only real lead in the case so far.
After extensive searching through surveillance video, this was the only vehicle traveling through the area at the time that has been found on tape.
Officials don’t know if the truck driver actually hit Pickett, but they would like to talk to that person to see if he or she knows something.
Two members of Pickett’s family talked to CBS4 over the weekend and have hope that the person responsible will turn himself or herself in.
“Just to come forward be a person of integrity and just give our family some answers,” brother Mike Pickett said. “I just plead with them to come forward and just know that they’re not coming against a family that has a vendetta against them.”
Anyone with information about the semi seen on the video or about the case is asked to call Denver Police.
