KING COUNTY, Wash. - King County investigators say a 15-year-old girl allegedly involved in a July hit-and-run that killed a jogger has turned herself in to deputies.
Greg Moore, an avid runner, was hit and killed on a road not far from his home early Sunday, July 18.
Surveillance video captured Moore running at 6:10 a.m. Based on his location, they believe he was hit at 6:16 a.m. on SE 216th St. near Maple Valley. About a minute later, a gray Toyota Camry, believed to be an older model between 2002-06, was seen running a stop sign just up the road from where Greg was hit.
When analyzing the video, investigators noticed there was another car traveling closely behind the Camry that also flew through this stop sign, as if both cars were traveling together, and in a hurry to get out of the area. Other surveillance video shows the two cars were traveling together on the same route where Greg was running shortly before they believe he was killed.
On Tuesday, Sept. 7, investigators recovered the Toyota Camry but said the teenage suspect was still outstanding.
Deputies have not yet released the identity of the suspect or a description of her.
She surrendered to police without incident on Thursday at KCSO's SeaTac precinct. Detectives say they hope it brings closure to the family.
"Maple Valley lost a beloved husband, father and friend far too soon," said King County Sheriff Mitzi G. Johanknecht. "Nothing will bring Greg home, but I want to express my heartfelt thanks to the MARR detectives who have worked this case tirelessly since July," said Johanknecht. "I also want to express my gratitude to the Maple Valley community, who refused to let Greg’s memory fade."
Greg's wife Michelle Moore said she feels a sense of relief knowing her family is one step closer to having someone they can hold accountable for the tragic death.
"What she did was wrong, and she knew it was wrong. Because she just kept going. She kept living her life, you know, while mine was torn apart," said Moore.
Michelle is doing everything she can to find the answers she so badly needs. The family has set up a website whokilledgreg.com and raised over $35,000 for a reward.
"I want to talk to this girl. My daughter wants to talk to this girl. My mother wants to talk to this girl," she said. "I think it's very important to illustrate what she took from us," Moore added.
Michelle says Tuesday September 14th would have been her and Greg's 30th wedding anniversary. She says they also were expecting their first grandchild within the next few months.
Moore says finally seeing an arrest in this case will bring her some closure, but nothing will bring back her husband.
"He was a good man. He was a good, good man. He took good care of me. He took good care of our family," she said.
