CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Cleveland Police are asking for your help as they continue to investigate a deadly hit and run of a 24-year-old man.

Police haven't been able to track down the driver or the car that hit Lennell McCormick just before midnight on August 18th on Kinsman Road near East 69th Street.

Two months later, no arrests have been made.

Lennell's parents want answers.

They say not knowing what happened the night he died has made the loss so much harder on them.

Venita and Wilbert McCormick still can't believe their youngest child is gone.

“We're going to miss him, that's for sure,” Wilbert McCormick said.

They're left with just pictures and memories.

“Just tears of memories of our son. Some are sadness and a lot of them are joy. But right now they're full of sadness,” Venita McCormick said.

“We want to know, who did this to our son? Who could actually go home and sleep and rest and live on?” she said.  

McCormick says it's been a struggle to get through every day since he's been gone.

“I love my son and I miss him so much. We were not eating for awhile, we are not sleeping to this day,” she said.

At just 24 years old, Lennell had so much going for him.

He was a store manager and he wanted to become a nurse.

“My son was very inspiring, loved to work with computers, loved people,” McCormick said.

Now instead of watching Lennell achieve his dreams, his parents are left pleading for answers.

They hope someone knows something that could solve this crime.

“If it was their child, nephew, son or uncle, what would they do if it happened to them?” his mom asked.

Police don't have any description of the car or the driver that hit and killed Lennell McCormick.

Anyone with information can contact Crime Stoppers anonymously at 216-252-7463 or text TIP657 plus a message to CRIMES (274637).

You can also call investigators at 216-623-5290.
