Glendale police are searching for a suspect who killed a Phoenix pedestrian in a hit-and-run crash at 87th Avenue and Camelback Road in 2012.

The driver killed 23-year-old John Mangan while he was on foot sometime between 2 a.m. and 3 a.m. on Nov. 11.

According to a press release, investigators believe the vehicle is a possible 2000 or 2001 Dodge Dakota pickup truck. They also suspect that the vehicle will have noticeable damage to the front end.
