MANKATO, Minn. (AP) — Charges could be upgraded against a hit-and-run suspect in Mankato now that the 20-year-old victim has died.
Authorities say Thanh Tri (tree) Vu, who lived in Burnsville and Mankato, died Friday at a Mankato hospital. KEYC-TV reports Vu was on life support until his brother could return from military service overseas.
Police found Vu critically injured in a parking lot early on Sept. 24. Witnesses say he had been struck by a car that sped away after a fight.
Vu's body was sent to Ramsey County for an autopsy. A 20-year-old man was facing charges of criminal vehicular operation and failure to stop after a traffic accident.
The Free Press reports any new evidence will be sent to prosecutors to consider new charges.
