Cheektowaga Police have released new photos connected to the fatal hit and run outside the Buffalo Niagara International Airport August 8th.

Police have released enhanced surveillance photos, which show the car they believe is connected to the incident.  The car can be seen at the top of the photos, and police say it is traveling "right to left".  

Police also released pictures of two plastic pieces they believe may be from the car, and placed them next to a ruler to show the size.  One of the pieces appears to have a manufacturers stamp on it.

The hit and run killed 55-year-old Robert Prigl, as he crossed Genesee Street to go to the airport.
