Public’s help sought in hit-and-run death near Lake Stevens

Snohomish County sheriff’s detectives are asking for public help to find out more about a woman killed in a hit-and-run Tuesday near Lake Stevens.

The woman was identified as Kathryn Hyde-Donohue, 53, of Lake Stevens by the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office. The office said she died of blunt force injuries to the head.

Hyde-Donohue was walking in a  red jacket and red baseball cap when she was struck on the 4400 block of South Machias Road. Deputies didn’t find her body until about 6 p.m. Tuesday, but detectives believe it may have been there since 5:15 a.m. that morning, according to a Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office release.

Detectives are searching for more information about her activities before her death and for anyone who may have seen her walking northbound on the east side of South Machias Road that morning.

Deputies were actually pointed to a vehicle that may have struck Hyde-Donohue before they found her body. While responding to a domestic-violence disturbance on the 12700 block of 18th Street Southeast in Lake Stevens, an interview of residents led them to the vehicle and to the possible location of the victim.

The car has since been taken as evidence for further processing, according to the Sheriff’s Office. Detectives haven’t arrested anyone yet but expect to recommend charges for a suspect after further investigation.

Anyone with information about the hit-and-run is asked to contact the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office at 425-388-3845.
