Edmonds Police Department Press Release

Edmonds Police Detectives have been able to learn additional information, but continue to seek the public’s help in solving the murder of Nagendiram Kandasamy. Detectives have learned that the suspect fled to an awaiting white, 4-door vehicle that was being driven by another person. It is unknown if there were others in the vehicle. The driver, and any other passenger, are encouraged to come forward and speak with detectives.

The suspect vehicle fled east on 238th into the residential neighborhood and is known to have made its way to 76th Avenue West before turning east onto the Snohomish/King County Line.

I graduated from the University of Washington in 2019 with a Bachelor of Arts, and I majored in Creative Writing. I began working at the Lynnwood Times in April of 2019 when we released our first issue. To me, community newspapers help highlight things that don’t typically get highlighted by larger news sources. For me, I find this especially true about the arts, and I have a strong passion for the arts community and bringing information about it to the public.
