Police get key clue in 4-year-old's death

Tampa, Florida -- Tampa Police say they have the key clue to solving the tragic death of a four-year-old boy. Detectives have just gotten high-quality surveillance video from a new angle showing Marterrance Albury being run down in a busy Tampa road.

The video also gives them a better look at the SUV that's responsible for the apparent hit-and-run late Sunday night. You can watch the surveillance video here:

Other video released Monday night shows the dark green or black 2000-2004 Ford Expedition that police say is responsible, but not very clearly.

Detectives tell 10 News the new video is dark and silhouetted, but sharper.

A 911 caller initially said they saw the boy fall out of the SUV. But Tampa Police Department spokeswoman Laura McElroy tells us the emergency room doctor on the case said from the injuries, it looked like Albury had walked into traffic and was hit by the car.

McElroy said the witness may have seen the boy up in the air and misunderstood what had happened.

Based on the combination of the new video, the medical evidence, witness statements, and other information, McElroy said detectives now believe Albury was likely the victim of a hit-and-run after walking into the road.

Police say they're working on a half-dozen strong leads on the SUV, thanks to TV viewers and other people in the community calling them.

If you have any idea who may be responsible, call the Tampa Police Department at 813-231-6130. Or to remain anonymous, call Crimestoppers at 800-873-TIPS.
