    AZ - Nathan DeWitt, 23, yo-yo champ, Phoenix, 25 Dec 2012

    Police search for clues in Valley yo-yo champion Nathan DeWitt's death (abc15.com)
    PHOENIX - Police are looking for a suspect in a shooting that killed a 23-year-old Phoenix man who was a well-known yo-yo champion.

    Police and Phoenix Fire crews responded to a rollover crash near 28th Street and Bell Road late Christmas night and found an SUV on its side. They say Nathan DeWitt crawled out of the vehicle and said "I've been shot."
    DeWitt was well-known for performing yo-yo tricks and for winning competitions in the Valley and in Washington where he once lived.

    He crashed just a couple blocks from his parents' home where police said he lived.
    A family member would not go on camera but seemed baffled by what happened, saying that they had been with DeWitt earlier in the day and that there was a relatively short period of time prior to the shooting that they were unaware of his whereabouts.

    My heart broke reading the thread on a Yo-Yo forum. One person said they threw a sleeper in his honor and let it spin until it stopped.

    From December 2013:


    Nathan DeWitt, 23, was shot and killed on Christmas night, 2012. It was a murder made even more devastating by the fact that it’s still unsolved...

    Tonya DeWitt said the neighbor who tried to save him, recalled Nathan saying, ‘I cannot believe they shot me.’

    No persons of interest or suspects have been named in the case. It’s not known whether DeWitt knew his killer. Loved ones say it’s hard to imagine who would have wanted to hurt DeWitt, described as a kind and gentle soul, known for his love and skill with the yo-yo.
