UPDATE: Pedestrian killed in hit-and-run identified

Edward "Joe" King

The man killed in a hit-and-run on Cedar Springs on Friday night, Nov. 25, has been identified as 61-year-old Edward Lee King. Initial reports listed his name as “N. Epsilon,” which is apparently a placeholder name Dallas Police sometimes use when relatives of a victim have not yet been notified of a victim’s death.

Police have still not officially identified the victim, and reports available to the public still use the name “N. Epsilon.” But CBSDFW.com published a report late Monday night, Nov. 28, saying that friends and relatives have said the man killed Friday night was Edward King, known to family and friends as “Joe.” The report also indicated that King worked parttime at Amico’s Pizza, located on Cedar Springs near the site of the accident.

The CBS report also includes video footage of King, footage from which the still shot at left was taken.

Police have video taken from cameras at a nearby business, but the footage is dark and grainy, almost to the point of being indistinguishable. However, LGBT Liaison Officer Laura Martin said investigators do have “good information” from witnesses that should help in identifying the driver who struck King.

Anyone who has information about this incident — or about a separate hit-and-run that happened three weeks before just blocks away at Cedar Springs and Reagan in which 55-year-old Wayne Priest was killed — is asked to contact detectives at 214-670-5817.
