Heather HenslUpdate May 21, 2015- In a surprise, the New Jersey hit-and-run perp was arrested. Downtown Express reports, “Tiffany Murdaugh has been arrested and charged with three counts — including assault in the second degree, a felony — on Wednesday for an incident on Beekman St. that seriously injured a woman last month.

Murdaugh, 34 and a New Jersey resident, was arraigned on charges in criminal court at 100 Centre St., which include reckless endangerment in the first degree and leaving the scene of an accident without reporting, according to the Manhattan D.A. Cyrus Vance’s office.”

May 14, 2015- Gothamist reports that a New Jersey driver, now identified, who ran over a pedestrian mother of two and then a second person minutes later, might not be charged with a crime by the NYPD because the person lives in New Jersey.

The article states, “At a 1st Precinct community meeting last week, local detectives explained to concerned residents why the case was in limbo: “We want to have a solid case when we bring this to the DA,” Capt. Mark Iocco said, according to Tribeca Tribune. “We can’t bring it to the DA with holes all over it. So you have to give us a little time. Our detectives, they’re doing so much with this. There’s a lot of pressure on the detective squad.””.
