UPDATE: Red Deer RCMP have located the truck involved in last month’s fatal hit and run

Investigation remains ongoing

Red Deer RCMP have located a truck they believe to be the one involved in the fatal hit and run in north Red Deer on March 11th, and thank the public for the numerous tips that have come in during this stage of the ongoing investigation.

“Red Deer RCMP obtained a judicially authorized search warrant and seized a truck that we believe, at this point in the investigation, may be the suspect truck in the fatal hit and run on March 11th. The RCMP forensic identification team is continuing the forensic work that will determine whether or not it is, in fact, the truck we’re looking for,” said Sgt. Kevin Halwa of the Red Deer RCMP traffic unit. “This has been a lengthy, detailed investigation requiring a lot of legwork from a number of specialized RCMP teams, and we’re grateful for the tremendous community support we’ve received. We hope to have more information on the progress of this investigation soon.”

Because work is ongoing to verify the truck’s possible involvement, RCMP are not able to comment further on any aspect of the investigation at this time. Red Deer RCMP will issue another update as soon as more information becomes available, and continue to encourage anyone who might have information about this investigation to call the Red Deer RCMP complaint line at 403-343-5575.
