'The only thing you have left are memories' | Family grieving after teen killed in hit-and-run

November 26, 2020. Summarized by summa-bot.

A family grieves after two weeks with no answers.

— DeKalb County Police are looking for the driver who hit and killed a teenager two weeks ago.

"It’s weird because you go from being able to handle it to crying," said Jason Poe, the teen's older brother.

Jason Poe buried his youngest brother, John, last week, but the reality of him being gone is just setting in.

"Now you realize the only thing you have left are memories and that is really hard," said Poe.

Poe’s family reported him missing later that day and started handing out fliers along Covington Highway.

I can’t understand driving away," said Poe.

Poe said there was confusion over which law enforcement agency would take the case and if the teen was a missing person or a run away, despite the family saying they had evidence of him being missing.

Dekalb County Police eventually ended up with it, but information was hard to come by.

The family was notified 48 hours after the teen was killed in the hit- and-run.

Twelve years ago, John Poe's mother died in an unexpected accident weeks before Christmas.

Now the family hopes the person responsible comes forward.

Help us heal and help yourself heal," said Jason Poe.

A police report says there is video that shows the car hitting John Poe. The car may have front end damage to the right side.
