Santana Hernandez Obituary, Death – The identity of the person who was struck and killed in the hit-and-run accident that took place on Broadwater Avenue about two weeks ago has been unearthed. Santana Guzman-Hernandez, 57, passed away on October 31 as a result of multiple blunt force injuries, according to Rich Hoffman, the deputy coroner for Yellowstone County, who stated on Tuesday that the cause of Santana Guzman-death Hernandez’s was blunt force trauma.
Guzman-Hernandez was a citizen of El Salvador and a resident of Billings at the time of his death, which investigators have concluded was the result of a homicide. Guzman-Hernandez was shot and killed. According to earlier reports from the Gazette, the dead body of Guzman-Hernandez was found by Billings police on November 1 in the backyard of a house in the 600 block of Broadwater Avenue. When first responders arrived at the scene, they discovered that he had already passed away.
According to Hoffman, the medical examiners have not determined the exact time that he passed away, but they have narrowed down the time of his death to sometime on Halloween night. Although they have not determined the precise time that he passed away, they have narrowed down the time of his death. There have been no arrests made in connection to the fatal hit-and-run, as stated in an email that was sent by BPD Lieutenant Matt Lennick, and investigators with the Billings Police Department are still working to identify a suspect in the case.
Billings police officers discovered the body of Guzman-Hernandez several blocks to the west of the location where another man was killed in a motorcycle accident later that day, on November 1. At the scene of the accident, which took place in the 2000 block of Broadwater Avenue, a medical examiner determined that the motorcyclist, who was 38 years old, had passed away.
The particulars of the memorial services that will be held in Guzman-honor Hernandez’s have not been made public just yet. Those services will be held in the near future. Two men are currently being investigated and charged with vehicular homicide in connection with two separate accidents that occurred in Billings earlier this year and both resulted in fatalities.
It is speculated that Kevin Roy Welter, age 40, was under the influence of alcohol when he drove a car into the path of a motorcyclist, causing the motorcyclist, who was 34 years old, to pass away as a result of his injuries. It is believed that Luis Gustavo Contreras-Bustillos, who is now 51 years old, was under the influence of alcohol when he caused a pileup on Interstate 90, which led to the passing of a Billings man who was 59 years old.
