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 it appears the man — Anderson Leroy Evelyn, 33 — suffered upper body trauma. His body was taken to the Hillsborough County Medical Examiner's Office.
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.
Deputies want to speak with the unknown male driver, and they emphasize that this person is wanted only for questioning.
They describe him as a white or Hispanic male, between 25 and 40 years old, between 5-foot-6 and 5-foot-9, and between 180 and 220 pounds. He was last seen wearing a gray sweatshirt, jeans, white athletic shoes with black trim and a green hat.
