A Washington State Trooper decided to ask Twitter for help solving a fatal hit-and-run
Posting only two photos of the evidence from the crime scene
The main clue was a mysterious car part
The tweet ended up on the sub-Reddit thread ‘What is this thing’ and one user quickly responded
Explaining everything about the part in detail
And identifying it..
As a headlamp bezel from a 1988 Chevrolet Silverado truck
Thanks to Jeff’s tip, they were able to make an arrest a few days later
