The witness thought Detello was having an issue with a flat tire but later determined he was unresponsive on the ground. The witness called 911 and tried to give CPR, according to WKBN. Other witnesses tried to help, but the victim died.

A coroner ruled Detello died of asphyxiation.

Police identified Henry as a suspect but did not say how they tied him to the case. They also didn’t release a possible motive.

Henry was arrested last week in Ohio.
