The Edmonds Police Department on Thursday released new photos of the suspect in the murder of Nagendiram Kandasamy, who was shot at a 7-11 store on Edmonds’ Highway 99 Friday, Feb. 21.
According to a statement Thursday, Edmonds police detectives have learned additional information about the case, but continue to seek the public’s help in solving the ongoing investigation. The newly-released photos highlight some identifiers of the suspect’s jacket, gloves and shoes worn at the time of the incident.
Detectives have learned that the suspect fled to an awaiting white, four-door vehicle driven by another unknown person. It is unknown if there were others in the vehicle at the time of the incident. The driver — and any other passengers — are encouraged to come forward and speak with detectives. The suspect vehicle also fled east on 238th Street Southwest into a residential neighborhood and is known to have made its way to 76th Avenue West before turning east at the Snohomish/King County Line.
Detectives are asking residents to check their home surveillance systems on Feb. 21, between 4:45 a.m. and 5:05 a.m., and contact the department if they have any footage that may help the investigation.
Kandasamy was said to have been a loving and dedicated husband and father whose family is desperate for closure. The motive for the murder is still under investigation. According to the Edmonds Police Department, the investigation remains the department’s top priority.
