KILLER WANTED IN SEATTLE December 4, 2015 --
Investigators have no idea who shot and killed a Seattle man, whose body was found on a road in Covington last month. But the family is hoping someone will come forward to provide answers.

"November 18th, 2015, was by far the worst day of my entire life," said Dawnese Witherspoon, mother of murder victim Dorian Haddix.

She wonders why her son, who lived in Seattle, was at SE Timberlane Boulevard and 185th Court SE in Covington on that date. And why he was murdered.

King County sheriff's Sgt. Cindi West said, "Somebody knows something about this case. There's somebody out there that did this, hopefully they've talked to somebody else and we're asking for the public's help to try to find this suspect."

Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the killer's arrest. If you have any information, please give them a call at 1-800-222-TIPS.
