WEST BATON ROUGE PARISH, LA (WAFB) -
Kelvin Shavers' eyes light up when he talks about his six-year-old son Kaleb.
"Overall I loved him to death," said Shavers.
Kaleb, who had autism, was found dead back in the early morning of December 15 in West Baton Rouge Parish. His body was located by a volunteer firefighter about two miles from where family members reported him missing from a party earlier in the evening.
State Police investigated the child's death and this week, the findings were presented to the district attorney's office.
"Our crash investigation is complete however we have very little to go on, on what type of vehicle may have struck the juvenile," said Trooper Jared Sandifer.
The State Police investigation also concluded that Kaleb was struck and killed on the westbound side of Highway 190, but for Kelvin there are far too many questions that remain about his son's death.
"The coroner told me a slow-moving vehicle. I don't know of any vehicle that moves slow on 190, not even at a DWI checkpoint. So slow-moving vehicle, someone hit him, backed over him and took him on highway and perpetrated like he got hit on 190," said Shavers.
Shavers adds he does not believe Kaleb could have wandered that far from the party, but what is not debatable is that police are still looking for the vehicle and a driver.
"We would like to wrap this up too as much as the family wants answers, we would like answers as well that's why we're asking help from the public in identifying this vehicle," said Sandifer.
As for who may be responsible, Shavers says it's just a matter of time.
"You won't get away with it. This will come out and as long as I have breath in my body. Doesn't matter I'm going to do what it takes to find out who killed my son," added Shavers.
