Mother Speaks Out After Son Killed in Police Pursuit
XENIA/TROTWOOD-- A mother is speaking out after her son, Agyasi Ector, was hit and killed by a suspect's car during a chase with Trotwood Police.
"He was my only son," said Susan Adegboruwe from her living room in Xenia, "It's just very difficult," she continued after an emotional pause.
Adegboruwe was in shock and disbelief when she learned of her son's death, after the chase and crash on Shiloh Springs Road. Ector was walking to work when he was hit and killed. The suspect's received broken limbs and minor injuries.
"He got hit by a car when he was 14 years old on his way home from school," said Adegboruwe, "So this is his second time getting hit by a car. All of those feeling came right back when I was wondering what happened to him."
Trotwood Police say the continuing investigation has turned up marijuana and two handguns in the suspect's car. The items are being sent to a forensic analyst to help build a case against the suspects, before new charges are filed against the two males for Ector's death.
"I can't even focus on that right now, because what he's done is done," said Adegboruwe about the suspects who crashed into her son, "Nothing is going to change the end result of what happened. I'll never understand why it happened to Agyasi but I can't question why it happened."
Adegboruwe says she has turned her focus from anger at the pursuit suspects, to paying for her son's memorial. She added Agyasi's lifelong battle with diabetes and struggle to find full time work left him without proper life insurance.
"It's one of the most difficult things I've ever had to deal with and I know I'm going to have to deal with it for a long time," Adegboruwe said.
At the crash site, a small memorial of flowers has started in Agyasi Ector's honor.
Services for Ector will be held on Friday, August 1, at Mount Calvary Baptist Church on West Third Street in Dayton.
Anyone wanting to help with the cost of those services is asked to donate to the Agyasi Ector Memorial Fund at Wright Pat Credit Union: Account Number 6499953.
