John Stewart (pictured), was a 19 year old man, who was killed a car on Route 5 in the early morning hours of Nov. 17, 2002 in the town of Enfield, Connecticut. A passerby discovered his body around 6 a.m. that morning and Stewart would be transported to a nearby hospital where he would succumb to his injuries. Police knew that the vehicle that hit Stewart was a was a red Jeep Cherokee. There was a reward for information in the case but the statute of limitations of ten years had run out.
Thirteen years after Stewart’s death, Law Enforcement would get a confession from a man identified as Daniel Corsini. The law was changed in 2012 to make no time expiration on motor vehicle incidents that involve any sort of fatalities, sadly this law can’t be applied retroactively.
Corsini was not the only one involved in this crime, his friend, Richard Kress, 42, helped Corsini to get rid of his vehicle that was involved in the accident. Both men were never charged with any crime.
In a quote in the Enfield Patch, Stewart’s father had this to say,
“If you have never been in this situation, you don’t know this pain, but I can tell you that losing my son is tragic. But to lose him to an uncaring, self-centered, self-entitled coward who allowed me and my family to wake every morning to relive the fact that it wasn’t a dream; it’s torturous to one’s soul. Everyday thinking that John is gone, that John had suffered, that I couldn’t say good-bye, that I will never hear his voice again, that he will never have a chance to be a dad and know the blessing of the love a parent has for their children. That as his father, his parent, his ultimate protector and care giver, I could not save him.”
Corsini is one guy that you hope you never have to share the same road with.
