MACOMB TWP. (WWJ) - Family and friends are again reaching out to the public for tips to help solve the case of a bicyclist killed in a hit-and-run on his 29th birthday.

It happened at around 1:20 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 5, 2016, at the intersection of Romeo Plank and Hall roads in Macomb Township. 

According to police, Kevin Clay Fletcher was biking on the eastbound shoulder of Hall Road after leaving work at PF Chang’s restaurant at the Mall at Partridge Creek. Police said he was crossing Hall at Romeo Plank Road in the crosswalk when he was struck.

The vehicle that hit Fletcher didn't stop, police said, instead continuing northbound on Romeo Plank Road. Fletcher, who left behind a son and a fiancée, died at the scene. 

After reviewing evidence and interviewing witnesses, police said the suspect vehicle is a 2005-07 Jeep, possibly a Grand Cherokee, light tan or khaki metallic in color. It may have damage to the headlight assembly on the right passenger side, as well as damage down the passenger side of the vehicle, including to the rear wheel-well.

Since the time of the crash, no one has come forward to admit fault or to identify the wanted driver; and Crime Stoppers is hoping a $2,500 cash reward will persuade someone who knows something to call with an anonymous tip. 

Fletcher's fiancee, son and a family friend are expected to speak at a Crime Stoppers news conference on Thursday, September 6, renewing their plea for help to find justice for their loved one. 

Anyone with information about this case should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-UP. Tips may also be submitted online at this link, or by texting CSM and the tip to CRIMES (2746370). As always, tipsters may stay 100 percent anonymous, will not be asked their names, to speak to police or to testify in court.

Cash rewards are paid by Crime Stoppers upon an arrest in a case.
