It has been close to a month and questions surrounding the traffic death of Kevin Jack of Davenport continue to linger.

Davenport police still are seeking the public's help in the case. They are asking anyone with information about the traffic death to come forward.

Jack, 21, was found lying in the roadway in the 5700 block of North Pine Street at about 2:20 a.m. June 15. He was taken to Genesis Medical Center-East Campus, Davenport, where he was pronounced dead.

Both the criminal investigation division and traffic acci-

dent investigation unit are trying to determine the man's movements and whom he talked to prior to the accident.

"We have

some ideas about his movements that Friday night and early Saturday morning," said Davenport police Capt. David Struckman. "We're trying to talk to people who can confirm our ideas and corroborate some of the other information we have."

Struckman said Jack's death is being investigated as a hit-and-run motor vehicle fatality. But investigators would like to have many questions answered.

For instance, did Jack fall out of the back of a pickup truck or was he hit by a car? If he was hit by a car, did he accidentally walk or fall in front of it?

A preliminary autopsy indicates Jack died of multiple internal injuries. It also indicates he had a blood-alcohol level of 0.18, almost twice the legal limit for driving in Iowa.

Anyone with information about Jack's death or his movements June 14-15 is urged to call (563) 326-7795.

All calls will be confidential, Struckman said.
