Detectives looking for Jeep Grand Cherokee in fatal hit and run
Sheriffs detectives say they believe a late 1992 to 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee could be the vehicle that struck and killed a Marysville woman sometime early Wednesday morning on 34th Ave. NE on the Tulalip Reservation.
The woman was walking north on 34th Ave. NE near the east shoulder of the road when she was struck by a vehicle in the 12400 block. Her body was discovered nearby in a grassy strip between 34th and I-5 by a driver headed south on I-5.
