Samuel Keys Obituary, Death – Samuel Keys IV was struck and killed by a vehicle on the evening of October 3, 2022 in the city of Monroe, Louisiana, in the 7900 block of Desiard street. The operator of the vehicle ran away from the scene. At the time of the collision, Keys was operating a motorized bicycle when he was struck by a vehicle. The Monroe Police Department has reason to believe that the vehicle that struck him was a black Toyota Tundra that was produced between the years of 2010 and 2013.
The victim’s family and the police are pleading with anyone who saw the hit-and-run driver or the vehicle to come forward with any information they may have. The rest of Samuel Keys IV’s siblings and his parents all reside in the state of Maryland. They assert that it has been challenging to try to obtain answers while physically separated from one another. Geraldine Keys, Samuel’s mother, claims that the family has been left with the impression that the investigation is not a high priority due to the lack of communication.
“They either don’t think it’s a big deal or they think we don’t care,” Geraldine explains, “but that is not at all the case.” This is due to the fact that the two of them are currently out of town. Shea Keys, his sister, thinks that the Monroe Police Department is aware that they are looking for answers; however, she agrees that the lack of urgency is disheartening. She believes that the Monroe Police Department is aware that they are looking for answers. Shea says, “I believe it is on the back burner because, as you mentioned, we are out of town, and we can’t just go to the station and demand answers.”
The reason for this is because “we can’t just go to the station and demand answers.” Shea is under the impression that it has been put on hold because they are unable to physically go to the station and demand answers. They assert that Samuel was the most thoughtful and perceptive person they had ever met, and that adjusting to life without him has been challenging and time-consuming for them, and that this trend will continue in the foreseeable future.
