Pittsburgh Steelers star Stephon Tuitt is mourning the death of his baby brother, Richard Bartlett III, who was killed in a hit-and-run accident in Georgia.

That’s when an oncoming car struck Richard and fled the scene.

Police are asking for the public’s help in finding the suspect’s vehicle, which is described as a dark four-door sedan – possibly a BMW.
