NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Authorities say a body found stuffed in the trunk of a car in Slidell is that of an 18-year-old boy who was killed in a New Orleans neighborhood.
New Orleans police have not released the name of the victim who apparently was shot multiple times.
Slidell Police say they received a call Sunday morning about a suspicious vehicle parked in a wooded lot. When police arrived, they found a car covered with a large amount of blood. The teen's body was found inside the car's trunk.
After determining the victim had ties to the New Orleans area, Slidell Police and New Orleans Police began a joint investigation. New Orleans police said Tuesday they've since taken charge of the probe after determining the murder occurred in New Orleans.
