BLACKMAN TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Blood tests are still not in yet from a deadly hit and run investigation from earlier this year, said Michael Jester, the Director of the Blackman-Leoni Township Department of Public Safety,

Police are waiting for those results to come back from the Michigan State Police Crime Lab before submitting a report in the death of 64-year-old Steven Georgopolous to the Jackson County Prosecutor's Office.

Georgopolous’s body was found in the early morning of April 10 on the side of North Elm Street.

Police say based on the debris left at the scene, it was determined he was hit by a vehicle that left the area.

A few hours later, an officer responding to an unrelated call found a van matching the parts.

The van in question belongs to a 35-year-old Leoni Township woman. She’s since been questioned and the van has been impounded.

Police say she’s still considered a suspect in the active investigation.
