Police seek fourth suspect in death of man found in Tampa trash bin

TAMPA — Ulysses A. Grant is the fourth and final suspect Tampa police are seeking in connection to a body found in a trash container in April. A warrant has been issued for his arrest on manslaughter charges, police said.

"He is the last person we are looking for," said Janelle McGregor, a spokeswoman for the Tampa Police Department. "He normally frequents the West Tampa area and has relatives in the Town 'N Country area. We are hoping anyone with information about his whereabouts can call the Tampa Police Department."

James L. Toney, 56, was found when a passer-by noticed his feet sticking out of a trash bin behind a closed bar at 1947 W Main St. It still is unclear how Toney died, though police said he was beaten. The autopsy results are not complete.

Jarvis Troupe, 24, Keontrye R. Williams, 22, and Renell M. Little, 17, all were previously arrested and charged with manslaughter.

Troupe of 5504 N 32nd St. is being held at a Hillsborough County jail. Bail has been set at $100,000. Williams of 1935 W Union St. is being held without bail in a Hillsborough County jail. Little of 1923 W Union St. was sent to a juvenile detention center because of his age.

Grant, 28, was arrested Feb. 27 on three counts of delivery of cocaine within 1,000 feet of a school. His bail was set at $22,500 and he was released the same day, according to arrest records.

Tampa police ask anyone with information about Grant to call (813) 231-6130.
