SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -
Caddo Parish Crimestoppers are assisting the White County Sheriff's Office with a cold case out of Searcy, Arkansas.
They're hoping to identify a homicide victim in a case from nearly 25 years ago. Investigators now believe he might have ties to Shreveport.
Back in 1989, a man's body was found in the Antioch community on Swinging Bridge Road. Deputies say there was no identification on his body and his identity could not be determined by dental records.
Shreveport Police are going to use Lamar electronic billboards all over the city and will feature a composite drawing of the man hoping to spark someone's memory who might have known him.
"They may have gone to school with him, may have worked with him, they may have been involved with him socially," said James Taliaferro with the Shreveport Police Department.
The Smith County Sheriff's Office believes the man, only known as "Gary," was shot and killed during a drug deal.
"Just by the nature of where the crime occurred and the way the body was disposed of kind of leads you to believe that he was meeting someone, and it was probably not legal," said Taliaferro.
The man was reportedly shot by two unknown individuals. They were never brought to justice, and the man was never identified.
"This is someone's relative, and they deserve to have an ID placed upon them," said Taliaferro.
