Letter among clues in Michigan fatal hit-and-run cold case

August 24, 2019

MIDLAND, Mich. (AP) — Police in a central Michigan county are seeking the public’s help in solving a 1991 fatal hit-and-run crash. One of the few clues: An anonymous letter of apology sent years later by someone who claimed to be the driver.

The Midland Daily News reports the Midland County sheriff’s office wants information about the crash that killed 24-year-old Gregory McRoberts nearly three decades ago. The Midland man was riding a bicycle, and his body was found about a month later in a ditch.

McRoberts’ relatives received a letter in 2005 from someone claiming to be the driver. It included an account of the crash as well as an apology.

The sheriff’s Facebook page says the family seeks “closure to years of speculation and grief by connecting with the letter writer.”
