Friday Update: Police Say Vehicle in Fatal Amagansett Hit & Run May Have Dark, Metallic Blue Paint

Posted on 27 October 2012

On Friday, Crime Stoppers of Suffolk County announced that East Hampton Town Police Department’s Detective Division believes the vehicle that struck and killed Amagansett resident John Judge on October 23 sustained front-end damage, most likely on the passenger side front of the vehicle. Police expect the vehicle sustained headlight damage and body damage and according to evidence recovered at the scene of the crime, the vehicle may have dark colored, metallic paint, possibly blue.

Crime Stoppers of Suffolk County has offered a $5,000 for any information leading the arrest of the driver involved in the hit and run accident, which occurred on Main Street in Amagansett on Tuesday night killing the 61-year-old resident who was a fixture in Amagansett. Amagansett resident Larry Siedlick has also offered an additional $5,000 reward.

According to a press release issued by East Hampton Town Police last week, a resident, later revealed to be East Hampton Town Councilman Dominick Stanzione observed a body in the eastbound shoulder of Main Street near a parked car, just east of Hedges Lane and notified police. Judge was transported to Southampton Hospital where he was later pronounced dead by emergency room personnel.

Funeral services for Judge will be held at Yardley & Pino Funeral Home in East Hampton on Saturday from 7 to 9 p.m.

Detectives are asking that anyone with information regarding the crash contact the East Hampton Town Police Department at 537-7575. Information can also be given to Crime Stoppers by calling 1-800-220-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.

    Hi there,

    I know John Judge well – I work at decorum Antiques in Amagansett, and he was our all-round handy-man. I cannot believe what I have just read – last week, John was painting rooms in the house I have just rented. He was an excessively kind and sweet man, quirky and talented – a true original. Amagansett was his home – he would wander around between the shop and the pizzeria, doing odd jobs for everyone in the neighborhood. He will be very much missed.

    I am sorry that I have no information about the driver. I hope that he gets caught and put in jail forever.
