(WMC-TV) - Signs demanding justice cover the front door to Vincent Scullark's Highland Heights home. Now, his parents are speaking out for the first time since his death, hoping to find out why no one has been charged in the hit-and-run case.
Vincent Scullark's mom was inside his house doing laundry when he was killed.
”By the time I got to him he was already up off the street. I ran out in the street to get his eyeglasses. They were laying in the street,” said Vivian Scullark.
Vivian and her husband, Odis, say the past few weeks have been tough.
The 29-year-old father of five was killed August 20 when he was hit by a car in front of his house. The driver of the car took off following the crash.
“For somebody just to run over somebody in the street and just leave him there like a dog? I wouldn't treat a dog like that,” said Odis.
Neighbors say a white Lincoln drove away shortly after hitting Vincent.
Later that same day, police located a woman who they say may have been driving that car. Police have not said whether the woman and Vincent knew each other.
But, Scullark's parents say they did. In fact, they say the two had been dating and recently broke up.
“He was just run over. She got out, ran over him and went about her business. She just didn't care,” added Odis.
Memphis police officers questioned a woman the same afternoon Scullark was killed.
Now, Vincent's parents want to know why no charges were filed.
“It's a horrible thing to live with. I have no peace myself because of what happened to my son. It hurt very deep,” said Vivian.
As they hold on to nothing more than their son's picture, Vincent Scullark's parents are begging for the public's help.
“If anybody knows anything or anybody can help us with this case, please come out,” said Odis.
Action News 5 reached out to District Attorney General Amy Weirich’s office to find outwhy no charges were filed in the case. We are still awaiting a response.
