Gaspar was taken to the hospital, where he died from his injuries the next day. The King County Medical Examiner found the cause of his death was blunt force trauma to his head.

Police said there were no apparent signs that he had been hit by a car, and his Volkswagen was nowhere to be found nearby. Police searched the area for any surveillance footage, but none was found.

Police thoroughly searched around Perrigo Park after Gaspar’s car was found there a week after he died.

Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound is offering up to a $1,000 reward for any information leading to an arrest and charge of those responsible for Gasper’s death. The family of the victim is also offering a reward of $1,000 for any information that leads to the arrest and charge of those responsible.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-222-TIPS or submit their anonymous tip through the P3 Tip App on their phone.
