REWARD: Karen McHugh's Hit-and-Run

Karen McHugh was struck and killed Friday night (1/30/15) at approximately 10pm in front of her home at 497 Arcade Ave. by a hit-and-run driver who remains at large.  The vehicle that is believed to hit Karen is a dark colored GM vehicle, which would have sustained substantial front end and passenger side damage.  

Her death leaves a huge void, not only in her family, but also the Seekonk Town Hall, where she worked as well as across many service groups in town where she played an active role including the animal shelter building committee and the Save a Pet Society, which raises money for the care of cats and dogs.  She was also a member of the town's historical commission and was an active member of the Seekonk Congregational Church.

Karen was the type of person to always put others, both people and animals before herself.  The person who killed her took away someone who was on a mission to make the world a better place.  There is an army of people standing up on her behalf who will not stop until the person who did this is found.  We are asking for the help of the public in raising funds for a reward contingent on the provision of truthful information or testimony.

Anyone with information or tips is strongly encouraged to contact the Seekonk Police Department at [phone redacted] (x9 if you would like to remain anonymous)
