The Pierce County Sheriff’s Department needs your help to identify the suspect responsible for a hit and run collision that resulted in the death of victim Rebecca Marteny.

At approximately 10:40 p.m. on Monday January 5th, 2015, a motorist found a critically injured woman on the side of the Golden Given Rd. near 106th St. Ct.
