Comments () A Text Size

Carrollton police are seeking information in connection with the recent hit-and-run death of a pedestrian.

Officer Jon Stovall, department spokesman, said someone walking along the service road in the 1800 block of Interstate 35 North found a man’s body Monday and alerted police.

Officials say the victim was apparently struck and killed sometime between Sunday and Monday.

The victim is believed to be 42-year-old Roberto Domingo Arancibia of Nicaragua, police said.

The victim has the name “Sarae” tattooed on his upper back and may have been known by other names in the past, according to police.

Stovall said police believe that debris found at the scene may have come from the vehicle that struck the victim and will provide clues for officers.

The suspect vehicle is believed to be a silver or gray 2006 Honda Civic and will have damage to the front right side, according to a news release issued by the department.

“We are just hoping that someone might notice damage to their neighbor’s vehicle or an alert body shop will be aware if the vehicle is brought in for repair,” Stovall said.

The police have been unable to locate any relatives or friends of the victim.

Police ask anyone with information as to the identity of the suspect or suspect vehicle, as well as contact information for the victim, to contact Detective B. Turner at 972-466-3307.
