CLEVELAND --Five-year-old Israel Thornton was killed by a hit-and-run driver last week.

The person who hit him still hasn't been caught.

Now, the website Jalopnik, dedicated to car enthusiasts, is "crowd sourcing" what little information police have, hoping to help crack the case.

Last Friday,a vehicle struck Thornton around 7:15 a.m. near West 37th Street and Denison Avenue.

The only pictures there are of the suspect's car come from a camera mounted inside a nearby school bus.

Jalopnik then took those grainy images of that car and told its readers:"Help Find The SUV That Killed A Little Cleveland Boy. Let's help figure out what it is, and find the person responsible."

It was a rallying cry to hundreds of readers.

Suddenly, people from all over the country began to diligently research, comment, and post their opinions.

Already, more than 100 people have weighed in.

One person createdan incredibly compelling .gif, which overlays a Kia Sorrento SUV with the suspect's vehicle.

WKYC did reach out to Cleveland police for their opinion on these images and new information, but we have not yet heard back from them.

If you have information that can help, please contact the Cleveland Division of Police at (216) 623-5295.

Anonymous information can be given to Crime Stoppers by calling (216) 252-7463.
