Police seize SUV in investigation of hit-and-run that killed Wang

Police may have a lead in the hit-and-run that killed Mike Wang on Dexter Ave at Thomas St last month. Though police are not calling the Port Orchard woman a “suspect,” but she is “under investigation.” Seattle Crime has more details:

According to a search warrant affidavit filed earlier this month, about a week after the accident police received a tip from a woman in Port Orchard, who said she’d been watching a news report on the fatal crash with her 31-year-old neighbor–who had been drinking–who told her “my friend hit that guy.”

Several days later, the 31-year-old woman asked the tipster if she’d said anything “inappropriate” to her while they’d been watching TV.

The tipster told police her neighbor had recently been driving a brown Chevy Suburban.

Detectives went to Port Orchard and interviewed the 31-year-old woman, who told police the Suburban–which police records indicate was actually silver–belonged to another man, but that she had been driving it the last two weeks. The woman denied knowing anything about the hit and run.

    It could be anything Tom but you’re getting my hopes up with this post. I hope they nail the person responsible for this tragedy.

    Seattle Crime’s write up does not inspire much confidence that this is the suspect.

      We’ll see. If this was the vehicle, let’s hope spd finds out. I assume we don’t know all the facts.
