Woman surrenders following fatal Kenmore hit-and-run

The driver believed to be responsible for a fatal hit-and-run in Kenmore has turned herself in to the King County Sheriff’s Office.

The suspect, a 24-year-old woman, surrendered this afternoon at Kenmore City Hall, said sheriff’s spokeswoman Sgt. Cindi West. In addition, the pickup believed to be involved in the accident was towed from the 18700 block of Kenlake Place, West said.

The body of the victim, a 31-year-old Kenmore man, was found along the 18400 block of 62nd Avenue Northeast about 1:30 a.m. Monday by a woman walking her dog.

The King County Medical Examiner’s Office has identified the victim as Joseph D. Humphreys.

Mark Humphreys, the victim’s father, told Times news partner KING-TV he wasn’t looking for justice.

“I’m only looking for answers and an apology,” he said. “I’m not after nobody. I just wanna know. I loved him.”

Injuries sustained by Humphreys were consistent with being hit by a vehicle, and detectives said debris left at the scene included part of a headlight that likely came from a 2003-2004 Ford F150 pickup.

Anyone with information on the accident is asked to call the sheriff’s office at 206-296-3311. Callers can also contact Crime Stoppers and remain anonymous and receive a reward up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest: 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
