Family and friends of April Fait – who was killed in a tragic hit and run accident in Burien on Feb. 24 – added $5,000 to the $1,000 reward offered by Crime Stoppers for information leading to an arrest of the person responsible for her death.

As we previously reported, April was crossing S. 152nd Street to enter the Highline Performing Arts Center located at 401 S. 152nd Street when she was struck and killed just before 7 p.m.

She was walking over to see her grandchild perform in a musical production by students from St. Francis of Assisi School.

April worked for Highline Public Schools and was looking forward to retirement.

    My condolence for the family losing their love one. May God give comfort to the family.

    The person driving the suspected car will have a better life if they turn themselves in and accept responsibility. Your life will be better, and you will be a happier person and a much, much, better parent. Go to church, bring a family member and turn yourself in. I am sure you will find the relief and forgiveness you seek if you do.
