New developments tonight in the hit and run in Nipomo that killed a homeless man on Mother's day. The CHP tells KSBY News it has identified persons of interest in the case.
Investigators say Fabian Alexander, 46, was killed while walking across the offramp of Highway 101 North at the 166East exit in Nipomo.
A day later, officers found a Chevy Corvette burning in rural Santa Maria, but they haven't been able to confirm if it's the same Corvette involved in the hit and run.
The CHP says this is a very complex case. At this point, investigators won't say much publicly, but do tell us they are making progress.
Besides identifying persons of interest in the case, investigators were able to pull the VIN off the burned corvette.
They used it to identify who owns the car, but have not confirmed with us whether it's the same corvette involved in the hit and run or if the owner was even driving the vehicle.
We're also told no search warrants have been served.
A lot of people are talking about this case around town and there's no question they think it's linked to the hit and run, but hunches and suspicions are not, which is what is CHP needs to put this case together.
Investigators plan to release more information later this week and of course, we'll bring you that information on KSBY News and KSBY.com.
The CHP is asking anyone with information on the case to come forward.
