Unidentified Male, Bayou Body Count No. 131
In the pre-dawn hours on Satruday, a man awakened his roommate to tell him he wasn't feeling well.
Which was a bit of an understatement: the man then collapsed and died shortly thereafter. Police discovered he had suffered "multiple blunt-force injuries."
The victim was pronounced dead at the scene near the 1300 block of Witte Road near Gessner and I-10.
His identification is being withheld pending verification by the county's Forensic Science department, police say.
Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
