Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a person of interest who may have been involved in the June 7 death of a man inside an adult video store near the area.
The Houston Police Department identified the person of interest as a black male with a gray beard. He was wearing a flat cap-style hat, red T-shirt and blue jeans, according to police.
HPD said officers responded to a person down call inside the store at 7720 N. Shepherd Dr. just after 6:30 a.m. Sunday, where they found a dead man lying face down in one of the viewing rooms in the back of the store. He showed no outward signs of trauma, according to police.
The victim’s identity and cause of death are pending verification by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences, according to HPD.
HPD said surveillance video shows the person of interest walking in and out of the victim’s viewing room before leaving the store in a white, four-door Nissan sedan.
Anyone with information on the man or his potential whereabouts is urged to contact HPD’s Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Houston Crime Stoppers at 713-222-8477.
