Hit and run victim identified
The Washington State Patrol released the name of the woman found in a ditch in Junction City last week. Their hope is that someone knows the woman, or more about what caused her death.
On Tuesday, a driver found the body of 36 year old Katrina Rugg of Aberdeen alongside Highway 12 in Junction City. The death is being investigated as a possible fatality hit and run. Her body may have been in the ditch overnight before being discovered.
First identified as a man, once officers were able to get to the body in daylight, the WSP discovered on Wednesday of last week that she was a woman.
Rugg’s family has been contacted.
There are currently no suspects.
