PLANT CITY — Detectives on Wednesday released several photos of a person of interest whom they would like to talk to about a February homicide.

On Feb. 8, a person walking along Taylor Road in Thonotosassa noticed a man's body about 40 feet off the road in a wooded area between Skewlee and Pruitt roads.

Deputies say that during the homicide investigation, they noticed a white GMC Jimmy or similar style sports utility vehicle with a yellow tag. Surveillance video from a Circle K near the scene of the homicide shows a white GMC in the parking lot on the day of the homicide.

No arrests have been made in the case.
