SACRAMENTO, CA - What information Sacramento police detectives have in the hit and run deaths of two adult brothers last Friday morning in south Sacramento has not led to an arrest so investigators are asking the public's help.
Mark Anthony Richard, 40, of Sacramento, and Eddie Eugene Richard, 43, of Henderson, Nevada, were found lying on 24th Street south of Meadowview Road at approximately 2:45 p.m. Police Officer Michele Gigante said the two men had been hit by a vehicle.
Emergency responders pronounced one brother dead at the scene, police said. The other died of his injuries later that day at an area hospital.
Gigante said witnesses said the brothers may have been involved in a fight before they were hit. There was also a pick-up truck of interest in potential connection to the incident. It was described as a white, late 2000s-model, four-wheel drive Chevrolet Silverado. It had a red or orange Z71 emblem on a side panel near tthe truck bed.
