$10,000 reward offered for arrest in killing of veteran at Deltona crash
Investigators believe Cruz was in his driveway when he heard the crash and went to see what happened, Chitwood said. After seeing the Chrysler 200 stuck in the ditch, Cruz offered to help.
He returned with his truck to pull the Chrysler out of the ditch. That’s when investigators believe Cruz was shot and his truck stolen, Chitwood said.
A man walking his dog around 8 p.m. on Saturday called 9-1-1 after seeing the car in the ditch. He said he got a flashlight to check things out and that’s when he saw the man in the ditch next to the car. He said the car’s passenger door and trunk was open.
“There’s a car pulled off the side of the road and there’s somebody laying in the ditch there right alongside it,” the caller said.
Chitwood authorized the reward.
