MCGREGOR, Texas — The McGregor Police Department said a Belton woman has turned herself in for killing a 26-year-old man in a hit-and-run Thursday. Bailey Carlson, 23, turned herself in for a second degree felony of not stopping to render aid, police said.
Temple police arrested her for her warrant out of McGregor and booked her into Bell County Jail, police said.
Police released the following video Tuesday of the 2005 to 2008 white Ford F-150 they believe hit and killed Kayn Kemp.
Police said Kemp was walking on the shoulder in the 2100 block of S. State Highway 317 around 9:40 p.m. when a pickup swerved and hit him.
The pickup did not stop, and Kayn was pronounced dead at the scene.
Detectives sent KCEN Channel 6 this video of the truck on June 7:
Kayn's wife, Cayla, said he was on his way to work at Ferguson Enterprises. When he never came in, Cayla got a call from Ferguson and started searching with his coworkers.
Cayla said what they found was traumatizing.
"I [saw] his backpack there," Cayla said. "His boss and me were looking for him, and his other boss showed up and found his body. I won't ever forget it. It was the most traumatic experience in my life. His body was totally unrecognizable in shape."
Cayla described Kayn as a loving husband, friend and father to their two children.
Kemp's visitation will be held Wednesday at 6 p.m. and his memorial will be held at noon Thursday. Both services will be at First Assembly of God in Moody.
A GoFundMe campaign was set up to help with funeral expenses and bills his family is left with in the wake of his death.
Anyone with information about the pickup or its driver is asked to call MPD at 254 840-2855.
