Syracuse (WSYR-TV) - One week ago today, a 27-year-old Liverpool man was run over near Destiny USA by a driver who police say was drunk and left the scene.

Sources have told NewsChannel 9 that the driver, 39-year-old Alicia Alampi, was with an Onondaga County Sheriff’s Investigator just before the deadly incident – and he may have been driving behind her when she allegedly struck and killed Robert BeVard.

Law enforcement sources told NewsChannel 9 that the investigator’s car has been impounded.

NewsChannel 9’s sources say the Sheriff’s Investigator was at the Destiny USA mall with Alampi and there is surveillance video of them together at the mall prior to the incident.

There is now an investigation into what the Sheriff’s Investigator may have witnessed and whether he made a call to the 911 center.

The Sheriff’s Office will not confirm or deny the report. NewsChannel 9 has been told that Sheriff Kevin Walsh is not available.

Syracuse Police declined to comment, nor would the District Attorney’s office.

District Attorney Bill Fitzpatrick only said that his office is actively investigating the crime.

Fitzpatrick added that his office would offer a comment when and if charges are brought.

Alampi has pleaded not guilty to felonies including vehicular manslaughter in the second degree and leaving the scene of a fatal crash, as well as misdemeanors including driving while intoxicated.

Police say Alampi had a blood alcohol level nearly twice the legal limit.

BeVard, who attended Liverpool High School, was buried on Wednesday.
