The sport utility vehicle believed to have been involved in a fatal hit-and-run at a Sherwood apartment complex has been recovered, police said.
Lt. Jamie Michaels, a spokesman for the Sherwood Police Department, said the red 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe has been linked to the March 11 hit-and-run that killed 3-year-old Jaylen Diggs at Park Crest Apartments on Manson Road.
Michaels said she had no information on how or where the vehicle was located, but she said it was linked to the crime and then sent to the state Crime Laboratory for further analysis.
Michaels said she couldn't speculate whether an arrest was imminent, but noted the owner of the Tahoe is not the person who was driving when the toddler was struck.
"They're building the case file," Michaels said of detectives' work. "We're still working the investigation, and we'll present that to the prosecutor when it's ready."
Jaylen was taken from the scene in critical condition. He was pronounced dead early March 13 at Arkansas Children's Hospital in Little Rock.
