Where is he? Hit and run suspect on the run

By Juan Carlos Fanjul - bio | email

RIVIERA BEACH, FL (WFLX) - A young man who said he was the suspect's brother was confrontational when FOX 29 stopped by the teen's last known address provided by police.

"The family doesn't live here," he said.

They are adamant they have nothing to do with the suspect, his brother only saying, "When you all find him, take him to jail".

That's exactly what Marianne Zebedee wants."It's not fair; it's not right and where does that leave us -- with our 21 year old gone?" she asked.

Zebedee is feeling a mix of grief and frustration.

Greaving because Kathryn Veroxie, her 21-year-old niece whom she raised since her teens, is dead.

Frustrated because the 15-year-old who, police say, mowed down Veroxie with an allegedly stolen car and killed her is now on the run. "We want this young man who made a choice to steal a car and run, we want him to be in jail and we want his parents to be held accountable as well," she said.

Veroxie was walking home March 19 in the area of Garden Road and Blue Heron Boulevard in Riviera Beach when the car came out of nowhere and fatally struck her.

The teen, who we are not identifying because he's a minor, was released to his family pending charges.

Now that charges have been filed, including vehicular homicide and grand theft auto, he vanished.

"We believe that he may be being aided by friends and relatives. Anyone aiding him will also be charged to the fullest extent of the law," said city spokeswoman Rose Anne Brown.

The teen, who is only 5'1" and weighs 130 pounds, is considered to be armed and dangerous.

If you know where he may be call Riviera Beach Police.
