Desmond Alexander, 25, Bayou Body Count No. 74

Some homicides are simple. And sometimes the cops don't know that much, so there's not a lot of info.

This is both.

At about 2 a.m. on Wednesday, 25-year-old Desmond Alexander was shot dead along the 9000 block of Edgar in south Houston near Sunnyside. Patrol officers simply found him dead inside a parked car.

There are no suspects or motives yet.

Anyone with information about this case can call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
