2021 Reckless Homicide Suspect in Custody
ROCKFORD, IL – On August 26, 2021, at approximately 5:20 p.m., Rockford Police officers
responded to the area of Broadway and 24th Street for a traffic crash involving two vehicles, a red
Chevy Cruze and a black Chrysler 300. The driver of the Chevy Cruze, Mason Hada, was
pronounced deceased at the scene. The driver of the Chrysler 300, Deahri Steele, was
transported to a local hospital for his injuries.
Rockford Police Department’s Traffic Unit continued to investigate and after a review of the facts
of the case with The Winnebago County State’s Attorney’s Office, an arrest warrant was obtained
in December of 2021, and the following charges were authorized.
Deahri Steele, 19, Rockford Reckless Homicide
Aggravated Driving Under the Influence Involving Death
On December 8, 2022, Deahri Steele was taken into custody in Detroit, Michigan, by
the United States Marshals Service Great Lakes Regional Fugitive Task Force.
“First and foremost, we would like to thank the Rockford Police Department, the other agencies,
and our community, for helping our family get some sort of closure for the horrible death of our
son, Mason Edward Hada,” says Mason’s dad, LeRoy. “Losing Mason changed all of our lives in a
miserable way. We all have been extremely patient the last 16 months waiting for the day Mason
got the justice he deserves and that day has finally come. Again, thank you to everybody involved
who helped catch this man, who can now finally be held accountable for what he’s done. God
bless you all.”
The charges are merely accusations and all individuals are considered innocent unless proven
guilty in a court of law.
