Medical examiner: Olmsted Township boy hit-skip death an accident

OLMSTED TOWNSHIP, Ohio - Although the autopsy report is not complete, the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner's Office has released the cause and manner of death for a Olmsted Township boy.

On Thursday, the medical examiner's office said Charles Kho Jr. died from blunt force trauma to his head and the manner of his death was an accident. Kho was walking along Cook Road with some of his friends on Oct. 17, passing out invitations to his 13th birthday party when he was hit by a driver who then took off.

Police are still looking for the suspect in the fatal hit-skip.

Acting on a tip, police towed a maroon Sable from the Ganley Body Shop in Middleburg Heights the next day. The receptionist working inside said the woman was acting strange and insisted on paying for the damage without reporting the accident to her insurer.

"Due to the sensitive nature of this investigation and to ensure the integrity of this investigation, the only comment we can release is that this is an on-going investigation and we are currently conferring with the Cuyahoaga County Prosecutor's Office," the Olmsted Township Police Department said in a statement on Thursday.
