The family of Joshua Breman, who was killed in a hit-and-run crash in February, wants answers.

The highway paint marks left by investigators tell a heartbreaking story. One shows where they found his phone cover; another where his glove was discovered; and then another where Breman landed after he was hit.

Breman's mother and stepfather visit the roadside memorial often, on Highway 412 near the Cleveland exit.

They don't find it comforting. They are looking for answers.

"It tears me up every time I see his memorial,” mother Robin Fowler said.

She says the night he died, Josh made her dinner but never mentioned he might walk to Tulsa later.

They believe he was walking in the median.

Troopers say he was hit by a large truck after midnight. They found yellow paint on Joshua's clothing.

"I don't see who in the world somebody's heart could be so hard and callous, to not stop, not acknowledge,” stepfather David Fowler said. “I couldn't live with myself."

Construction workers told them some of their heavy orange barrels had been knocked over, so they believe the driver was swerving -- either sleepy, drunk or on the phone. They say an accident turned into a crime when the driver kept going.

"Why didn't they just stop and get medical attention and assist him instead of just letting him lay there?" Fowler said

They hope the driver will come forward or someone who knows who it is, will turn them in to OHP.
