Sheriff identifies hit-and-run driver

ELKINS – The Randolph County Sheriff’s Office announced it has completed its investigation of a hit-and-run on the Beverly Five-lane in October and submitted a report to the Randolph County Prosecuting Attorney’s office.

Sheriff Mark Brady told The Inter-Mountain Tuesday evening his office has identified the driver and the vehicle that struck and killed Clinton Lee Deem.

“We have submitted our findings and turned the report over to the Randolph County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office,” Brady said. “It will be up to the prosecuting attorney to determine what charges will be filed in the case.”

Michael Parker, Randolph County’s prosecuting attorney, was unavailable for comment Tuesday.

The hit-and-run incident, which occurred Oct. 27, claimed the life of Deem, 24, a former resident of Clarksburg and Elkins.

In late October, Sheriff’s Office officials said they determined the time of the accident to be approximately 3:07 a.m., after combing through video surveillance footage from businesses in the vicinity.

The accident occurred near the entrance to M&S Electronics, across from Glotfelty Tires. Deem’s body was not discovered until 11 a.m. because it was located several feet off the northbound side of U.S. 219/250, officials said.
