A would-be burglar was looking for items to steal from a car when he
made a gruesome discovery. The man opened up the trunk of that car and
found a body inside.
He made the discovery after finding the car running but parked along
Normandy near the East Freeway. The motive in this case has not been
determined and there is no suspect, but police have told us that this
murder may have been drug-related.
At 4am, a man driving with his wife and four-month-old baby spotted a
Chevrolet on the side of the road. The engine was running, and the keys
were right in the ignition. He told police he decided to see if there
was anything worth stealing inside. It turns out there was a dead body
in the trunk, so he called 911.
Police say the victim is a white male in his 20s. He had been shot at least once and left lying face down.
“We do know that he had a gunshot wound to the chest,” said HPD
Homicide Investigator Jack A. Harvey. “Also, inside his pants he had a
quantity of some unknown pills inside of a ziplock bag. At this point
the investigation is still ongoing. We’re still looking to try to
identify him and find out what led to this situation.”
Detectives believe the victim was shot somewhere else and then the
body was placed in the trunk. Since the man was carrying unlabeled
pills, investigators suspect the motive for this crime could be
drug-related. There is also evidence of a struggle between the man and
Harvey said, “The gunshot wound was the most prominent wound.
However, he also had some abrasions to his face. He had some swelling,
Detectives say that the man who made the discovery is not a suspect.
