Hit-and-run victim identified

The Washington State Patrol has identified the woman found dead on State Route 12 Tuesday as Katrina D. Rugg, 36, of Aberdeen.

Rugg was found on State Route 12 just outside Aberdeen near Sargent Boulevard Tuesday evening, the apparent victim of a hit-and-run.

Police believe she may have been killed as early as Monday night. She was identified through her fingerprints Friday.

State Patrol spokesman Trooper Russ Winger said they found what may be debris from the car that killed Rugg.

“The car parts are skimpy and they may not tell us much,” Winger said Friday. He said detectives hope to release more information next week to learn more about Rugg and where she may have been coming from the night she died.

Anyone with potential information should contact Detective R. Green at 360-473-0148.
