Woman killed in hit-and-run south of Everett is identified

Detectives have been searching for the vehicle that struck Katherine Mueller, 31, of Snohomish.

EVERETT — A Snohomish woman who suffered critical injuries in a hit-and-run earlier this month has died.

Katherine Mueller, 31, was walking south on Eighth Avenue W at 128th Street SW just after midnight on June 6 when she was struck in the intersection by a westbound vehicle.

Mueller died Saturday at a hospital.

Her identity was released Wednesday by the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office. She died of blunt-force injuries.

The driver reportedly fled the crash scene just south of Everett, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.

On June 8, the sheriff’s office posted a memo to Facebook asking for the public’s help to identify a suspect. Detectives believe the person’s vehicle sustained damage to the front bumper and the hood, as well as potential damage to the front windshield.

Tips can be directed to the sheriff’s office at 425-388-3845.
