WILLARD, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri Highway Patrol is seeking the public's help to solve the death of a southwest Missouri high school wrestler.

Eighteen-year-old Steeler Seaburn of Willard died in a hit-and-run accident on April 6 of last year, one month before he was to graduate.

KYTV reports (http://bit.ly/14I3Sdh ) the patrol says it does not currently have a suspect in the death, and is asking for possible tips in the case.

Seaburn was hit while walking along a country road between Willard and Springfield.

He was an all-state wrestler at Willard High School. The school offers a wrestling scholarship in his honor.
