Authorities say one man is in custody and more arrests are expected as Slidell police continue to investigate the city's third homicide this year.
Felix Adams Jr. was booked with first-degree murder after an officer spotted his car about 11:30 Sunday night.
Police spokesman Daniel Seuzeneau says Adams was sought in connection with the death of 23-year-old Leighton Powe Jr., whose body was found Saturday in a ditch along Javery Road.
Although Powe's body was found outside the Slidell city limits, St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's detectives determined that he had been shot in Slidell and taken to where he was found.
It was unclear whether Adams has an attorney.
