Family of Gregette Guy still searching for answers to her murder

The former husband and daughter of murder victim Gregette Guy came to West Seattle Monday to celebrate her life at a Girl Scout Campt near River Ridge. Guy was killed last March after parking her car and taking a walk along Beach Drive in West Seattle.

The West Seattle Herald's news partner Q13 Fox in a follow up story about the aftermath of the murder reports that "as a troop leader, Guy used to bring her daughter to the camp. The troops honored her memory by raising a totem pole with Guy’s named carved into the side"

Q13's David Rose writes, "But even as the pole went up, it was hard for Guy’s daughter and husband to come to grips with the loss.

“I think about her everyday,” Dwight Guy said. “But there’s just something about, my God, it’s been a year and it’s kind of hitting us.”

Police believe Guy was murdered by a stranger. Wendy Colton, a neighborhood resident who works with the Girl Scouts, said she never before thought something like a murder could happen in her neighborhood.

“My own neighborhood, my streets, paths that I walk everyday,” Colton said. “My community is mourning for the crime that happened.”

Guy’s family is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the killer’s capture."
