Police say detectives have talked with neighbors in an effort to locate witnesses, but are still short of enough information to make an arrest. A key to solving the case would be an identification of the SUV shown in a photo released by authorities.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 559-498-STOP.
