A 37-year-old Mukilteo woman was killed in a hit and run collision in north Everett Friday, May 25.

The Mukilteo resident was identified as Heidi K. Allen Tuesday, May 28, according to the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s media report. She was found near the 1300 block of 13th Street and Rucker Avenue in Everett.

The collision occurred around 9:30 p.m., according to the Everett Police Department.

Because there were no witnesses, police could not confirm the make or model of the vehicle that struck Allen.

Her death was initially classified as suspicious, because there was no clear evidence she was involved in a car versus pedestrian collision.

The cause of death was blunt force trauma, according to the medical examiner’s report. The manner of death was classified as homicide.

The police were unable to identify a suspect in the case initially, but on Monday, June 3, a 36-year-old Everett man was arrested.

Per the Everett Police Department, a detective located a maroon car in the 1400 block of 14th Street that had damage consistent with having been in a collision.

While the detective was examining the car, man came from a nearby residence and claimed to be the owner of the vehicle. After talking with the detective, the man accompanied officers to the Everett Police Department’s north precinct.

Officers found probable cause for the man for felony hit and run resulting in a death.

The suspect was booked into the Snohomish County Jail, and the investigation is ongoing.
