Ryan Mears: Crash and Trial Deputy

ryan mears: Ryan Mears is chief trial deputy for the Marion County Prosecutor's Office, according to Metro News. He says the request stems from the numerous aliases used by the suspect. Indiana prosecutors are seeking a DNA sample from the Guatemalan man charged in a drunken-driving crash that killed Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson and an Uber driver. Investigators say the suspect, 37-year-old Manuel Orrego-Savala, has twice been deported from the U.S. and was illegally living in the country at the time of Sunday's crash in Indianapolis. Mears says investigators want to compare the DNA to samples taken from inside the pickup truck that hit and killed the two victims along Interstate 70. Along with Jackson, the crash killed 54-year-old Jeffrey Monroe. ( As reported in the news.
