12 days and counting

Congratulations. It’s Friday. You’ve made it to the end of another week. Summer is on the wane. It looks like it’s going to be a pleasant weekend.

Unless you happen to be the mother, father or family member of Faith Sinclair.

It’s now been 12 days since the hit-run accident that took her life as she attempted to cross Chester Pike in Sharon Hill.

That’s almost two weeks. And we still don’t know who was driving the car that snuffed out the 16-year-old’s life.

We know the car. In fact, police have a black Mercedes in their possession that is believed to be the vehicle that struck Faith. We know who owns it. Police have labeled him a “person of interest.” But we don’t know who was driving it that Sunday night when Faith was fatally struck, and the driver never bothered to stop.

No charges have been filed in the case.

Sunday night will mark two weeks since the crash. Maybe those involved are hoping that the incident will simply fade from memory.

Police continue to investigate. The owner of the car has indicated through the lawyer he hired that he will not be talking to police.

There is a $10,000 reward for information in the case. You’d think that wouldn’t be needed in a case in which the life of an innocent teen was taken away, her family left to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives.

Maybe it’s not enough. Police believe there was a passenger in that car. That’s two people who likely know exactly what happened that fateful night.

In the meantime, her family and friends wait. But they don’t forget.

Neither do we.

12 days and counting.

Anybody up for meeting at the roadside memorial in Sharon Hill at 10:00pm on Sunday night, August 17th? I will be there. I think we should get as many citizens and as much of the media there as we can to remember Faith and to remind people that justice has not yet been served.

Thank you for your time,
