FORT MYERS, Fla. - Detectives investigating the first homicide of 2011 hit the streets, passing out flyers and hoping for leads.
Fort Myers detective Mali Langton went door to door Thursday to downtown businesses and area soup kitchens, looking for information about a homeless man's lifeless body found Monday morning.
The body of 59 year old Hugh Byrd, Jr. was found in Centennial Park Monday morning.
On the flyers were a description of what happened, a picture of Byrd, and information of a reward for information leading to an arrest.
Investigators believe Byrd was last seen alive Sunday night at the Red Rock Saloon and Hideaway Sports Bar.
