KCSO seeks public’s help finding perpetrator of July 18 hit-and-and-run fatality near Maple Valley

Detectives with the King County Sheriff’s Office Major Accident Response and Reconstruction (MARR) unit seek the community’s help to identify any persons responsible for the July 18 fatal hit & run collision near the 23800 block of Southeast 216th Street, an area of unincorporated King County near Maple Valley.

King County deputies responded to this location at about 10:55 a.m. July 18 after a 53-year-old man was found deceased near the roadside. He was an avid runner and is believed to have been struck as he neared the end of a 15-mile Sunday run. A preliminary investigation indicates he was likely hit by a vehicle that fled the scene, leaving little evidence behind. This is a tragic case that cost a Maple Valley family their beloved husband, father and son.

Any persons with information in this case are asked to call the King County Sheriff’s Office non-emergency line at 206-296-3311 and reference case C21022337.
