Lead investigator testifies in hit and run case


Decatur – New details in the case of David Overlin, 24, who pleads not guilty to hitting and killing a toddler in a crash.


The lead investigator testified in a hearing yesterday that Overlin admitted the license plates on the Ford Explorer the night of the crash were changed to a Cadillac at Overlin's home.


Investigators also found t-shirts with what appears to be blood on them inside the Explorer, which were sent to the crime lab. A preliminary test indicated there was human blood, and what appeared to be human tissue on the Ford Explorer. The Explorer was also sent to the crime lab for further investigation.


The officer also says security video from Decatur Memorial Hospital showed Overlin looking outside and underneath his car shortly after the crash.
