Probe: Victim likely laying in road

All evidence gathered thus far by investigators from the GSP and BPD indicates that a man killed in an incident here early Sunday was laying in Forsyth Street when struck. The incident was first termed a hit and run. According to Capt. Al Moltrum of the BPD, Steve Caslin was driving the car that struck and killed Claude Webb about 3 a.m. ”After learning of the incident, Mr. Caslin turned himself over to authorities about 9 a.m. Mr. Caslin was cooperative during the investigation and advised he thought he had struck an animal in the roadway,” Moltrum said. There was no front end damage to Caslin’s car. All damage was to the undercarriage, Moltrum confirmed. ”All evidence supports that Mr. Webb was laying in the roadway when struck by the vehicle. It is still undetermined why Mr. Webb was laying in the road,” Moltrum added. Autopsy and toxicology results from the crime lab are still pending. At present, no charges have been filed against Caslin. The investigation is ongoing. Once it is complete, findings will be turned over to the district attorney’s office, Moltrum said.
