            The Kodiak Police Department has announced that it may have identified the vehicle involved in the fatal hit-and-run that killed Justin McGriff nearly three weeks ago.

            A Crime Stoppers Hotline tip led police to the unidentified vehicle, according to a written statement from the police chief’s office.

            Detectives from the Kodiak Police Department and forensic scientists from the State of Alaska crime lab have been analyzing the vehicle to determine if it was involved in the fatal collision. The chief’s office says interviews have been conducted with people with a connection to the suspect vehicle, but so far have not made any arrests.

            McGriff’s body was found in the early morning hours of April 29th on Pillar Mountain Road, not far from where he lived in a tent.
