Michigan AG Files Charges Against Family in Hit-and-Run Death
Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette has charged an area family for their part in a cover up of a hit-and-run death last year. Thirty-four-year-old Jeffrey Lee of Riley died after being struck by a black Chevy Silverado last September outside the Fraternal Order of Eagles on Dort Highway. He had just left a wedding reception. The driver of the vehicle, later identified as 26-year-old Scott Gunn of Burton, never stopped. Gunn, his father Leon and mother Sherry Long, all face multiple charges in the incident. Long – who is charged with tampering with evidence, conspiracy and interfering with a police investigation – was also working as a crime victim advocate in Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton’s office. Leyton had asked for a special prosecutor last October due to the connection. All are expected to surrender to authorities and be arraigned this week.
