Police Release Video of Person of Interest in Young Greatness Murder
On Friday (Jan. 11), authorities released surveillance video of a man they would like to speak with in connection with the crime. The video is only eight seconds long and shows a man in a white hooded jacket walking in a parking lot. According to the New Orleans PD, the man is only wanted for questioning and is not wanted in the investigation, reports The Advocate.
Young Greatness, born Theodore Jones, was shot and killed outside of a Waffle House in his hometown of New Orleans on 2900 block's Elysian Fields Avenue on Oct. 29, 2017. He was shot once and declared dead on the scene at the age of 34. Police believe the perpetrators fled in the rapper's vehicle.
"I can't stand that place," Greatness' mother, Jeanine Rose said after hearing the news. "They can have it with their politics and potholes. It's too many mothers taking slow walks to sad tombs while they sit at home and play politics with people's life and people living."
Police have been on the hunt since then. They've already identified one person of interest. A short while later they announced they were looking for a second person whom they'd like to talk to about the crime. The search continues for those responsible for the Cash Money rapper's death.
