Ocoee Hit-and-Run Driver Discovered

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on October 31, 2016

Today, the police department in Ocoee, Florida, has reason to celebrate. After an intense, although brief, search, they were able to identify and apprehend the culprit in a hit-and-run case that left one person dead and no concrete leads: no witnesses, no description of the vehicle, no description of the driver. According to the initial statement released by the Ocoee police, the accident occurred at around 1:00am on Sunday morning, close to where Silver Star Road and Taylor Street intersect. Anonymous sources alerted the police to the fact that there was a person lying in the road and that it looked as though he had been injured by a car.

When the police arrived, they found an unresponsive individual and not much else. It is believed that a witness saw the victim, who has not been named or even identified, before they were run over, and this witness told the authorities that the dead individual was staggering in and out of the road before the accident occurred.

Using the investigative powers that fuel such shows as Columbo, Law & Order, and Dexter, the authorities were able to piece together what ephemeral information they could glean from the scene and arrange a somewhat decipherable portrait of the killer. They then tracked this individual down by first finding the vehicle, which was hidden in the tall gras behind the house of its owner. When the police came to the door, the inhabitant, one Jenner Omar Ramosnavarro, 25, broke down and confessed to being behind the wheel of the vehicle. When asked why he didn’t initially turn himself in, Ramosnavarro said that he had been too afraid of being arrested if he went to the police, so he ran. His wife and child were in the house when the police arrested Ramosnavarro, and it is not known whether or not he has posted bail or received any of the several charges which will likely be brought forward.

Again, the authorities are still trying to ID the individual who was killed in the incident. Therefore, the investigation is still underway as the authorities seek to gather together as much information as possible.
