Investigation continues into crash that killed sheriff's deputy

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - As authorities continue to build their case against the man charged in the death of a Lubbock County Sheriff's Deputy, family, friends, and colleagues prepare to lay Corporal D. Robert Harvey to rest.  Harvey's family held visitation services Tuesday.  They will lay him to rest Wednesday afternoon at Resthaven Memorial Park.

Also Tuesday, accident investigators were back on the scene of the crash site.  Even though it's been nearly two days since the accident happened, the area is still a major part of the investigation.  

Accident investigators came back to the crash scene at E. 88th Street and Martin Luther King Boulevard Tuesday morning.  Just after mid-night Sunday, authorities say Harvey was headed north on MLK in his patrol car, a Dodge Charger. As he approached the intersection at 88th, they say Justin McKinney, headed south, tried to make a left turn in his Ford pick-up, and collided with Harvey's vehicle.  Tuesday, the reconstruction team examined skid marks and the point of impact to determine how fast both vehicles were going.

McKinney remains jailed on a charge of intoxicated manslaughter. We discovered McKinney's MySpace page. It shows he has not logged on since January, so months before the wreck, still the headline reads sippin and swervin, and in the about me section it reads I'm the life of the party. I like roping steers, chasing girls, drinking beer, and having an all around good time. There's no word yet if the MySpace page could or would be used as evidence against McKinney.
