Friends of a bicyclist hit and left for dead in Bonita Springs expressed their grief and called for justice.

Friends of Lynn Brown believe he was the man hit and killed last Thursday while riding his three-wheeled bike at the corner of Nottingham Lane and Bonita Drive.

"When I heard it, I immediately thought of Lynn," said Marsha Jamison.

His karaoke group rushed to his home.

"Went over to check on him and he wasn't around and it was getting dark, it was raining, with no lights on, we feared the worst," said Steve Burton.

Authorities have not officially identified Brown as the victim despite Brown's friends being willing to share what they know.

"We let them know that we are available if they need us to come and identify him," said Burton.

But they are waiting for a reply.

"Unfortunately have not heard back from anybody," said Denise Ussery, a friend of Brown's for the past twenty years.

Tonight's karaoke at Sneaky Pete's will be a chance for them to honor Lynn, complete with a moment of silence and all of his favorite songs.

"He had great passion, he had a smile that would light up the room," said Ussery.

They'll perform with his favorite seat in the house filled with flowers and candles..

"That's the right place for it. He was always close to the stage. He'd sit right there and wait his turn and then get up and sing," said Paul Taylor.
