Deputies identify suspected 15-year-old driver in fatal collision of Maple Valley man

The alleged driver is still at large, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office.

With the help of the community, the King County Sheriff’s Office has identified a suspect in the July fatal hit and run of Greg Moore, a 53-year-old Maple Valley man.

The suspect alleged to have been the driver in the incident is a 15-year-old girl who is still at large, according to a Sept. 8 Sheriff’s Office press release. Deputies on Sept. 7 recovered the Toyota Camry she had allegedly been driving and are now processing it for evidence.

“Nothing will bring Greg home, but I want to express my heartfelt thanks to the MARR (Major Accident Response and Reconstruction) detectives who have worked this case tirelessly since July,” King County Sheriff Mitzi G. Johanknecht said in a prepared statement. “I also want to express my gratitude to the Maple Valley community, who refused to let Greg’s memory fade.”

Moore was struck by a car on Sunday morning, July 18 while jogging in the 23800 block of Southeast 216th Street near Maple Valley. A swell of community support and tips helped detectives make progress in the case, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

Detectives used headlight fragments found near the scene, along with surveillance and other evidence, to track down the Toyota Camry. Detectives believe this Camry may have been traveling with another vehicle, around 6:15 a.m., in the vicinity of the collision with Moore, who was found along the roadside.
