19-year-old Jake Montano has been named as a suspect in a fatal hit-and-run last week.

Police recovered a black 1990 Honda Accord they believe was involved in the fatal incident.

Police describe Montano as 6 feet, 170 pounds, with short dark hair and brown eyes, and with a large tattoo on the right side of his neck that says "Aaliyah."

Michelle Singer, a sister of Morales Singer, had just received the news from a Marion County victim's advocate at the courthouse when contacted by the Statesman Journal.

Morales Singer was struck around 11:30 p.m. last Wednesday. Police arrived to find him lying in the road near Edwin Court NE. Medics were unable to save him, and he was pronounced dead at the scene
