Town of Greece sued over investigation

Town of Greece sued over investigation

Greece, N.Y. – Parents who lost their daughter in a car crash are suing the Town of Greece and its former police chief.

Cindy and Nick Oliva’s daughter, Stephanie, 18, died when the car she was in was struck at the corner of West Ridge Road and Cabot Road on November 4, 2005.

Chad Kenyon was driving, while Oliva was in the passenger seat.

They say police botched the investigation and failed to determine responsibility, which, in turn, denied the family’s “right to access the courts.”

“Justice is what it’s all about,” said Nick Oliva.

In the lawsuit, the Olivas say police did not properly look into whether alcohol or drugs were involved claiming they closed the case before Kenyon’s toxicology report came back.

They also say investigators did not investigate the driver of the car that hit Kenyon’s.

No charges above a traffic violation were ever filed.

The Olivas are suing the Town of Greece, former police chief Merritt Rahn, town supervisor John Auberger, and former investigator Brian Ball.

The Town of Greece and the Greece Police Department did not respond to requests for comment.
