Barnett said his office is still gathering information and will conduct a forensic investi- gation on the student's vehicle. Benninghoff, who is in the midst of an election race for the District 3 seat on the Kyle City Council, said Tuesday that an unidentified witness saw what they thought was an ac- cident at the scene where his brother was found dead, and the witness pulled over to see if anyone needed help. Ben- ninghoff said the witness told him that the vehicle that alleg- edly hit Duran was swerving and then the witness saw the vehicle's backlights move up and down as if it hit a bump. Benninghoff said the wit- ness talked to the group of in- dividuals who were supposed- ly standing'outside the vehicle looking in the grass. They told the witness they hit a deer and everything was fine, before they left the scene. Barnett said they have made contact with a potential wit- ness and are ongoing in their conversations.
