COLFAX, Wash. - Two days after WSU graduate Kristen Grindley was found unconscious on a rural Whitman County road, the 23-year-old remains in critical condition at Sacred Heart.

The Whitman County Sheriff's office believes the injuries Grindley sustained occurred from her either falling from a car or being hit by one sometime between 1:30 a.m. and 1:41 a.m. Wednesday.

Grindley was reportedly safe at home at 1:30 by a friend who was visiting - only to be found about a mile from the intersection of Highway 27 and Albion rd. just 11 minutes later.

Grindley, unconscious and in a pool of blood when discovered by a passerby, was initially taken to Pullman Regional Hospital and has since been transferred to Sacred Heart.

Wednesday, the Whitman County Sheriff's office interviewed her boyfriend, who they are calling a 'person of interest' and whose truck they have since seized as part of the investigation.

According to police records, Grindley's boyfriend was investigated and arrested for domestic violence in April of this year after slapping Grindley across the face, though no charges were filed in the case.

The couple has been dating for about year and live together. The Whitman County Sheriff's Office did serve a search warrant on the couple's home, but details from that search will not be available until at least Monday.
