Bolivar Man linked to hit and run death of 21 year old

HOUSTON (FOX 26) -

On the Bolivar Peninsula back on June 8th the life of a beautiful young woman was taken.

Her name was Catalina Delgado and she was just 21 years old.

She was walking along a stretch of Loop 108 at night when struck at high speed by a GM pickup

The driver did not stop.

"Right is right and wrong is wrong. Just be a man for once in your life and stand up for what you did," said Antonio Lopez, Catalina's cousin.

From debris recovered at the scene Galveston County detectives linked the hit and run with a truck owned by Dennis Seivers, a 49 year-old Bolivar resident with a history of drunk driving.

But even with pieces of Catalina's cell phone embedded in the pickup's side mirror the evidence has yet to produce an arrest.

"Right now we don't have the physical evidence saying this person was operating that vehicle at that time that caused the death of that young lady," said Capt. Barry Cook of the Galveston County Sheriff's Department.

Seivers isn't talking and neither are longtime Bolivar residents who investigators believe can easily place their suspect in the truck the night Catalina was killed.

"If anybody knows anything, either before or after the incident, that can tell us who was driving that vehicle for a fact and can testify to that, we would love to hear from them," said Cook.

Detectives say witnesses Bolivar withholding evidence can be charged as an accessory.

Meantime a month after Catalina Delgado's death her cousin offered a poignant reminder of what was lost.

"If you met Catalina she would light up your world in five minutes. Her Smile, her laugh, she was like a flower," said Lopez.

Catalina Delgado was a college student living with her uncle and may have been riding a skateboard when she was killed.
