Another Anonymous Male, Bayou Body Count No. 16
The list of anonymous bodies and unknown killers continues to grow, as Houston homicide detectives opened another case over the weekend.
On Friday at about 10:30 p.m., the cops got a call from a resident along the 3400 block of Tampa, a little east of Hermann Park, about a dead body in a nearby house. When officers showed up, they found a man lying on the living room floor. He was riddled with gunshots to his legs and torso, police say.
People living in the area told investigators that they heard gunshots and then saw four guys leaving the home. So far, police say, that's all they have to go on.
The name of the dead man is being withheld until the medical examiner is able to verify his identity.
If you have any information about this case, you can call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
