A woman with a history of drunken driving convictions drove her vehicle onto a baseball field in ME during a game, police said, striking and killing a Vietnam War veteran who confessed five years ago to killing a 4-year-old girl in an alcohol-fueled 1968 hit-and-run. Some 400 miles away, the news is bringing relief to one family, reports the Washington Post.
In 2013, after police received a tip about the case, they began to question Parkhurst about the death of 4-year-old Carolee Ashby, who was killed after she was struck by a auto on Halloween night in 1968. Parkhurst himself confessed to a deadly hit-and-run in 2013, bringing some answers but little solace to the family of Carolee Ashby, a 4-year-old killed on October 31, 1968, as she walked to a store in Fulton, New York, with her then 15-year-old sister to buy birthday candles for the teenager's cake.
"It sounded like I hit a dog", Parkhurst wrote in his 1968 confession. When Parkhurst confessed, the statute of limitations had expired.
Carolee had been walking with her 15-year-old sister to buy candles for a birthday cake.
"I felt kind of helpless because at that point the only thing I knew was I cared about the safety of the kids on the ball field", Curley said. It made a complete circle.
Sharrow, 51, of Sanford, Maine, was arrested shortly after the crash Friday and charged with manslaughter, according to Sanford Maine police. Sgt. Matthew Jones. Authorities have declined to say whether alcohol was involved on Friday.
Carolee's father and brother died before Parkhurst confessed in 2013 and her mother, Marlene Ashby, died previous year. Witnesses told Portland ABC affiliate WMTW that Parkhurst was attempting to push children out of the way and close the main gate to prevent the woman from fleeing when he was struck. "Now it is time to move on". He said she was reported missing in 2014 and found in the woods about 24 hours after she was last seen at a local restaurant.

Police received a tip-off that Parkhurst, then 18 years old, had apparently crashed a Buick into a pole that same night. "I did not see what I hit".
Police, however, were skeptical of his story. The suspect went off to serve in Vietnam, then returned to the region.
Parkhurst told police on the night of the hit-and-run that he hit a guard post, but admitted in the confession that was a lie. "I don't know why the police never challenged me on this". He and his brother had been drinking when they left their brother's house and drove into Fulton; his brother was passed out in the back seat.
