A 46-year-old Bellevue man has been charged with murder after assaulting a man in 2019 and leaving him on a Redmond roadway.
Based on anonymous tips and thorough investigations, Redmond Detectives arrested Bradley Hibbard on Thursday, June 2 for murder in the second degree.
Detectives reported that on July 29, 2019, Hibbard assaulted Francis Gaspar, 38, of Seattle. He then left Gaspar on the roadway near the intersection of West Lake Sammamish Parkway NE and Leary Way in Redmond.
A passing motorist noticed Gaspar lying in the street and called 911. Redmond Fire personnel treated Gaspar at the scene and transported him to a nearby hospital where he died from injuries sustained during the assault. He suffered multiple abrasions and lacerations and sustained severe head trauma.
Hibbard was leaving court in Kent on an unrelated offense when Redmond detectives arrested him and transported him to King County Jail. Bail is set for $2 million.
