Default A Pontiac, MI white boy's, 12 life changed forever after hit and run then negro done the unthinkable


Detroit's Most Wanted captured: Man wanted for hit-and-run that hurt boy caught in Illinois

Posted: 6:22 PM, Feb 14, 2019

PONTIAC, Mich. (WXYZ) — The investigation into who hit a 12-year-old boy on his bike last month is getting a major break as police are revealing only to 7 Action News who they believe is responsible for this terrible crime. And just minutes after our story aired came word our newest Detroit's Most Wanted was already in custody.

The U.S. Marshals say Dominique Amos may be the most heartless fugitive we’ve ever searched for – his actions right here last month, changing a 12 -year-old boys life forever. He's now in custody in Peoria, Illinois. A viewer tip led police to his location even before our story aired.

Racheal Castle saw the flashing lights in front of her window as life as she knew it, and her son as she knew him, quickly slipped away.

"So I went running down there and Christian was already gone so they made me identify if it was possible him by his shoe laying in the middle of the road," she said.

Christian Castle was riding his bike just outside his home when police say 26-year-old Amos slammed into him with his van.

"This is an innocent 12 year old child, this kids joy riding his bike on a January day, not a care in the world and then he’s struck by this person," U.S. Marshal Aaron Garcia said. "He shakes his wheel to detach himself from the child and the bike which fall off down the block. The bike is discovered down the block there, that’s where it fell off."

Police say Christian and his bike got lodged into the hood of the van on impact, and Amos did the unthinkable, shaking his wheel and swerving to throw the child off the van and into the road.

Christian was in a coma for three weeks and his family says it is still too soon to tell just how severe and permanent the physical and cognitive injuries will be.
