NEW RIVER, Ariz. — On Feb. 23, a jogger was killed in a hit-and-run in New River. Now, almost a month later, an arrest has been made, the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office announced on Monday. 

43-year-old Lisa Mancuso was jogging near the intersection of Seventh Avenue and Cloud Road around 10 a.m. on Feb. 23 when she was hit and killed by a pickup truck that did not stop. 

Mancuso died at the scene of the crash. 

On Feb. 27, Maricopa County Sheriff Russ Skinner announced that the pickup truck that hit Mancuso belonged to a law enforcement officer, and that the suspect was a relative officer. 

The officer was not involved.

A warrant was issued for the arrest of the suspect, identified as 21-year-old Jacob Moore and MCSO says he surrendered to the MCSO Vehicular Crimes Unit on Monday around 4 p.m. 

Moore is being charged with manslaughter and failing to stop at the scene of a crash.  

“Our Vehicular Crimes Detectives have worked around the clock for the past few weeks to bring justice for the Mancuso family,” Skinner said in a press release. “While I understand this is a difficult situation for everyone involved, I’m proud of our detectives and support personnel in processing the evidence to bring closure to this investigation. MCSO will remain committed to providing educational programs and enforcement services to address traffic safety throughout Maricopa County.” 

MCSO says the investigation into this crash is still open.  

This is a developing story and more details will be added as they are made available.
