Indiana State Police look for driver in fatal hit and run

A wedding photographer is killed in a hit-and-run on his way to work at another job. Family members are devastated at this morning's loss of a husband, father, and grandfather.

The family of Edwin Zweydorff remember his usual goofy smile and how he always had his camera. Mike Zweydorff, Edwin's son said, "He was one of my best friends. Whoever did it should step forward."

Police say the 64-year-old Henryville, Indiana man was on his way to work at a Louisville printing company when a white vehicle hit him. It's believed he was hit from behind.

Zweydorff's 2003 Honda Shadow motorcycle was tossed into the south-bound emergency lane of I-65 about two miles north of the Sellersburg exit.

When the accident happened, police say it was still dark outside.  Police found Zweydorff's helmet on the ground, but they don't know if he had been wearing it.

Sgt. Jerry Goodin, Indiana State Police said, "We know with the amount of damage that was done to the motorcycle, that the amount of damage or trauma that was to the body, we know that whoever hit Mr. Zweydorff knows that they hit someone."

The Zweydorff family spent Saturday morning making flyers and putting them up at nearby truck stops, hoping someone would come forward with information.

Edwin Zweydorff took portraits of everything from high school seniors to horses. His granddaughter Jaclyn Zweydorff shot weddings with him. She'll take over his business, Eddie Z. Photography.

Jaclyn said, "If you know you hit my grandpa, please turn yourself in because I don't want to go through not knowing who hit him."

Police are looking for a white vehicle with damage to the front and passenger side. The vehicle is likely a GM truck or van.

If you have any information that might help police call Indiana State Police at 812-246-2509.
