Mysterious Death on Middle Country Road

Selden (WALK) - Police will be trying to figure out how a Smithtown man who apparently went missing late last week wound up dead on Middle Country Road over the weekend.

Sean Slattery, 56, has been identified as the man who was struck by a van and killed in Selden, just west of Bicycle Path. According to a message posted on Smithtown Patch, Slattery went missing recently and hadn't taken his medications for some 48 hours. The posting said he had diabetes and mental health issues.

The driver of the van is identified as Shuming Fan of Flushing. Fan, 56, was not injured and hasn't been arrested.

Detectives ask that anyone with information about the accident or the victim contact the Sixth Squad at (631) 854-8652 or Suffolk Crime Stoppers at 1 (800) 220-TIPS. All calls are kept confidential.
