NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - NOPD officers think tracking down a truck will help them solve a homicide case.
They want help finding a truck captured on surveillance video. They believe the truck was involved in the death of a man whose body was discovered inside a burned vehicle near the intersection of Flite Court and Airway Street in New Orleans East. The vehicle burned early the morning of June 4.
The Orleans Parish Coroner's office believes the man, who has been identified as Devin Diamond, died of blunt force trauma.
The wanted truck is described as an older model pickup, red in color. However, the truck's roof is not painted red. The truck is equipped with chrome rims, chrome running boards, chrome rearview mirrors, a bed cover and tinted windows.
