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).

Kenmore’s Transportation Benefit District is putting aside the idea of using a toll to fund Sammamish River Bridge repairs for now.
The board is putting off discussion of tolls because it thinks there’s a possibility of getting federal grants for bridge renovation, according to a news release. Instituting a $20 vehicle fee for Kenmore residents will be discussed at its meeting next month, though.
The board is unsure of how soon the bridges — one span in each direction — need to be replaced, but the City of Kenmore is collaborating with King County on several studies that will help determine that, according to the release. The West Bridge has more wear than the East Bridge because it is older.

King County sheriff’s deputies are investigating the discovery of the human remains of a man near Bastyr University in Kenmore.
Two Bastyr students contacted the sheriff’s office on Thursday to report finding bones, “that they thought possibly belonged to a human,” sheriff’s Sgt. Kathleen Larson said.
The King County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed that the remains were human, Larson said.
“What we’re doing right now is setting up our sifting stations and looking for more evidence. ID will be made through DNA,” Larson said on Friday. She added that it appears the remains have been there a while.
Bastyr, a school focused on natural health studies, is located inside a 51-acre wooded area on the shores of Lake Washington.

A man and woman wearing masks went to a Kenmore apartment Wednesday morning and demanded to know, “Where’s the stuff?”
King County sheriff’s deputies say the resident fled, climbing down from a third-floor balcony, before he realized he had been stabbed in the back. He was treated at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
KOMO Radio reports the victim thought he recognized the man’s voice as a friend. The masked robbers apparently sped away.

The body of a 31-year-old man who was last seen running from a bail bondsman Monday night near the Sammamish Slough in Kenmore was pulled from the water Tuesday, the victim of an apparent drowning, the King County Sheriff’s Office said.
Sheriff’s spokeswoman Sgt. Cindi West said she didn’t have information on where the man lived or why he was being sought. His identity and cause of death are pending, according to the King County Medical Examiner’s Office.
The man was found in 8 feet of water about 12:45 p.m. Tuesday, the Sheriff’s Office said.
The first caller to 911 reported that a uniformed person was chasing a young man toward the slough in the 17400 block of 82nd Court Northeast, West said in a news release. Others callers said they heard splashing and a man yelling for help in the water, according to West.
On Tuesday, deputies contacted a woman who was with the man when he fled. She reported that after the man ran, he phoned her and told her to meet him on the other side of the slough, according to West.
Members of the sheriff’s marine-rescue and dive units searched for the man Monday night without success; they returned to the scene Tuesday and found the man’s body in the water near 16900 81st Avenue Northeast.
Detectives are investigating the incident.
Last week, Snohomish County sheriff’s investigators said a body pulled Feb. 29 from a Lynnwood-area lake was believed to be that of a man who had escaped from authorities three days earlier following a car chase.
