    I’m curious about the young woman, too. What did the investigation turn up? Who is she, or rather (given that we haven’t heard a word from the authorities), whose daughter is she? Her name was probably redacted from the daily fax the Chehalis PD sends out…they do that a lot, way more than the Centralia PD does.

    Beau Jangles you are so right, the city is dumbing down the public with Fluoride. In the mean time they have their water brought to them Fluoride Free. City officials won’t even drink the water on tap

    Just so everyone knows I did not post the previous comment.

    Just wondering why the details of this accident have not been made public? Who was the 22 year old female involved in this hit and kill? Do we need to file a public information’s request to the agencies? Makes a person wonder if the good ole boys may be protecting their own again?
