Jogger's Fam: We are overwhelmed

The family of the deaf man killed while jogging is thanking their Austin community for an outpouring of "generosity and love." Dee Dee Fenwick, the sister of Mark Gobble who died in the hit-and-run accident, released this statement:
"My name is Dee Dee Fenwick and I am the sister of Mark Gobble. Our family, including Mark's wife Leslie, would like to to take this opportunity to thank the Austin Police Department for their help and cooperation in finding and apprehending the hit and run driver. We are overwhelmed with the generosity and love of the community, friends and family. At this time, our family has no further comment and we would appreciate your respecting our privacy as we prepare for Mark's funeral. Thank you."
KXAN-TV in Austin says the suspect arrested in the case, Roman Jesus Turullos-Gonzalez, has faced charges in the past, including misdemeanor possession of marijuana and felony possession charges from 2010.
