“Upon arrival they observed the apparent lifeless body of a Hispanic male later identified as sixty-three-year-old Guatemalan Pablo Hernandez of Las Flores. Initial investigation reveals that Flores was riding his bicycle north bound when he was apparently knocked down from a vehicle behind. The vehicle didn’t stop and was later intercepted by police in Hattieville. So, that vehicle is now impounded and one person is in custody pending this investigation.”
