“I recently got my license and I’m under 18 and the fact that…it scares me, road rage. What did a little kid have to do with this?” Christian Vasquez said.
Florentino Olivera of the CHP is asking for the public’s help in locating the vehicle.
“If you know of a neighbor who has this very uncommon car vehicle and you don’t see it anymore, that may be a clue that something is going on…give us a call. We’ll look into it. It might help break the case,” he said.
A GoFundMe campaign for Aiden has already raised more than $300,000, some of which is being made available for a reward that leads to the prosecution and conviction of the suspect or suspects.
“That driver, or whoever was in the car, they have to be going in their mind, thinking something, and the fact that you’re sitting on this so many days later, it’s very…it’s ignorant,” one mourner said at the memorial.MORE NEWS: Marvel Suing To Keep Rights To 'Avengers' Characters From Copyright Termination
