Family Wants Answers After Wallet Stolen from Man as He was Dying in a Car Crash

ABC 22 / FOX 45 Dayton's News Source - Fri, 10/24/2014 - 01:47

DAYTON -- Police are looking for a man who they think stole the wallet of a man who lay dying at a crash scene.

70-year-old Kenny Phillips crashed his car at Jersey and East 3rd Street on October 2. Three days later his family members realized his wallet and all his identification was missing.

"We have to find out what really happened. We owe it to my dad, he would do the same for me," said his daughter, Crystal Phillips.

She says her family is taking that situation very hard, they just lost their mother last year.

"I just wish and I hope and pray that nothing really bad happened to him except the wallet we just really need to find out," Crystal said.

Miami Valley Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of about $1,000. They have released photos that were captured on the bank's surveillance video.

The suspect is seen in an army T-shirt on one occasion and was wearing a Nike T-shirt in another photo.

He makes several trips the Chase bank ATM machine on East Third Street just a short distance from the crash scene. His first attempt was just 20 minutes after the crash.

They don't have the PIN number so before the ATM took the debit card they return several hours later trying to do it again, said Detective Cayce Cantrell of Miami Valley Crime Stoppers.

She's hoping someone saw something and someone can identify the man seen trying to steal from a man who was dying.

Crystal does, too. She says she hopes they can get answers so they can go on with their lives. She says they desperately need closure to be able to move forward.

"We need answers. We need to know what happened to our father. We need to know so that we can move on and live in peace," Crystal said.

If you have any information about Kenny Phillips crash and theft investigation, you're asked to call Miami Valley Crime Stoppers at 937-222-7867 (222-STOP). You can remain anonymous.

Fitzgerald Town Hall Meeting in Dayton

ABC 22 / FOX 45 Dayton's News Source - Fri, 10/24/2014 - 01:21

DAYTON -- Democrat Ed Fitzgerald held a town hall meeting Thursday evening at the Dayton Cultural and RTA center for his campaign for the Ohio Governor's race.

"Our public officials aren't supposed to be above us," Fitzgerald said about the appearance. "They're supposed to get down at the grassroots level and talk to people, defend and explain their positions. The governor should do that through debates. He's not, so we're doing it at this town hall today."

The comment was directed at current Governor John Kasich, who has refused to debate Fitzgerald.
