PARIS, Maine (AP) — Two people identified by police as persons of interest in a hit-and-run in Paris that took the life of a Turner teenager have been cleared of involvement in the case.
Police Chief Michael Madden says one person came to the police to report an unrelated accident that happened in the area the same evening.
Police were led to another though a tip, but that person’s vehicle had no damage and they had a strong alibi for the time of the crash.
Sixteen-year-old Xavier Fuentes was killed on an unlit stretch of Route 117 sometime before 8:30 p.m. March 15.
Madden tells the Sun Journal, that the department has received tips about the crash every day but none have led to a break in the case.
