BSO Seeking Damaged Jaguar in Hit-and-Run Death That Flung Bicyclist Over Train Tracks

If you know anybody who drives a 2000 to 2002 maroon Jaguar S-Type and the car is missing a few front-end parts -- as if the car had recently killed a bicyclist by launching him over some train tracks -- the Broward Sheriff's Office would like to know about it.

The BSO's traffic homicide unit is looking for said Jaguar after it found the body of 35-year-old Kevin Hamill on East Commercial Boulevard in Oakland Park.

Based on the amount of car parts left at the scene, like parts of the passenger-side front end, lower front end, fog lights, and the fender, the cops are pretty sure they know what type of Jag they're describing.

The collision happened around 12:20 a.m. today, according to police.

Hamill was struck while riding his bike near the west side of the train tracks on Commercial Boulevard, when he met the Jaguar -- which threw him onto the other side of the tracks.

The Jaguar kept driving, last seen headed toward Federal Highway.

If you've got a tip, call BSO Detectives Michael Wiley or John Grimes at 954-321-4840 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 954-493-TIPS.
