Chimner told police that he did not know the person’s real name, but that his friend, a 13-year-old boy, “had stolen vehicles for this person in the past.” Chimner told the detective that he and the 13-year-old boy went to hang out with friends in the Battle Creek Avenue area around 11 p.m. February 16th. Soon after, they started walking down the road.
Shortly after midnight, Snyder was leaving his girlfriend’s birthday party in the 200 block of Battle Creek Avenue when he noticed both teens walking. The 17-year-old offered to give the boys a lift as the wind chill approached 12 degrees, and the two climbed into Snyder’s vehicle, a 2006 Lincoln Zephyr. “It was very cold outside that night and Snyder was trying to be a good guy,” Chimner told police.
The 13-year-old boy told Snyder to pull over as they approached the intersection of Battle Creek Avenue and Capital Avenue SW, Chimner explained.
