The three new photos are clearer than an image police released Monday, though all four images look to show a man wearing a white T-shirt and black, backwards ball-cap.
The rapper, whose name is Theodore Jones, was shot dead at age 34 shortly after 1:30 a.m. Monday outside a Waffle House in the 2900 block of Elysian Fields Avenue. Police said officers found him lying face-down, shot in the back. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Jones’ car was stolen from the homicide scene, police said, but NOPD recovered it several hours later. NOPD spokesman Gary Scheets on Monday declined to comment on a possible motive, including whether it involved robbery.
Anyone with information about the homicide or the whereabouts and identity of the pictured person is asked to contact Homicide Detective Brett R. Mathes at 504-658-5300 or leave an anonymous tip through Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111.
