Summary of Incident: Kennewick, Wa.

February 26th UPDATE:

The autopsy was performed today at the Benton County Coroner's Office on Mr. Robinson. The cause of death was blunt force trauma. The injuries are consistent with being struck by a vehicle.

We still have in possession the white pickup that was located yesterday and another white dodge pickup that was found by a patrol officer last night. Both will be processed for evidence tomorrow.

We do not yet know for certain what type of vehicle that struck Mr. Robinson. The white pickup was the last vehicle that we see in the traffic camera video that puts brakes lights on just before we believe that Mr. Robinson was struck.

Anyone who may have more information about this case is still encouraged to contact police.
