Portage Woman Charged in the Death of Ricky Kimble

Share this post

A Portage woman has been charged for an alleged hit-and-run which resulted in the death of a LaPorte, whose body was discovered by a mowing crew earlier this month. According to court documents, Patricia Callahan is charged with three-felonies: leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death, reckless homicide and insurance fraud. The body of 50 year old Ricky Kimble, was found in a grassy ditch, just south of eastbound I-80/94, about a mile west of the Portage exit, on August 6th, and an autopsy determined he died due to blunt force trauma to the body, which resulted in multiple fractures to his legs and spine, as well as traumatic internal injuries. Kimble, who had been reported missing by family members on August 5th, had reportedly been walking along I-80/94, and court documents state due to the distance between his body and personal belongings, he had been hit by something traveling at a considerable speed.
