PIPESTONE Twp., Mich. – It has been six weeks since 21-year-old Tyler Carr was found dead behind a house in a field in Pipestone Township. His father, Jamie Carr, is begging for answers.
Tyler, a Watervliet High School graduate, was at a big outdoor party off Fairview Road on March 24.
His body was discovered around 9 a.m. the next morning.
Preliminary autopsy results show Carr died from being run over..
Jamie Carr says he's barely slept and can't work since his son was killed. He says not knowing what happened is tearing him up and he's begging for answers.
"I have nightmares,” says Carr. “How much pain was my son in that someone could have called 911 and saved his life. Tortures me every day.”
Police say 40 to 50 young people were at the party where there was some underage drinking going on.
Police have the truck that was involved and have interviewed the driver, who happens to be an acquaintance to the Carr family. But six weeks after the investigation started, Jamie Carr can't believe no charges have been filed.
"It blows me away that nobody is in jail,” Carr said. “You have a dead person, have evidence of a driver, the other ones walking around free."
Carr is also struggling to find out what happened in the hour leading up to his only son's death. Rumors have swirled that Tyler may have been drunk and passed out in the field, or that he was involved in a fight and was knocked unconscious.
"I believe there are people that know, but they're scared to come forward," Carr said.
Carr stresses they won't get in trouble for telling the truth...he just wants to know.
"Please, or my sake, my son's. I can't get over this until I know the answers. I'm begging for answers."
Berrien County Undersheriff Chuck Heit understands the Carr family's frustration, but he says he hopes to very soon present the case and evidence to the prosecutor's office to decide on possible charges.
"There's some vital information, evidence wise, that we're waiting on,” Heit said. “Investigators are also continuing to follow up on interviews. There have been over 100 people interviewed.”
If anyone has information or saw what happened to Tyler, they can remain anonymous by contacting Crime Stoppers.
