New Orleans Police Homicide Detectives used physical evidence and witness statements to solve the murder of two males ages 19 and 21. Guy Hayes 10-9-92 and Gary Jones 5-29-90 were booked with Obstruction of Justice based on their roles in attempting to conceal the facts of this incident. The incident occurred in the 6000 block of Craigie Street at approximately 4:00 P.M.
During the course of the investigation physical evidence as well as witness statements, shows the two deceased individuals shot and killed each other in the rear of a vehicle in the 6000 block of Craigie Road during a narcotics transaction that went bad. The bodies were then driven to the 300 block of Kenilworth where they were disposed of. The vehicle the subjects shot each other in was later found burning at Mirabeau and Warrington.
Shortly before 4:00 P.M., on 2-23, 2014, Seventh District Officers were investigating a call of “shots fired” in the 6000 block of Craigie Road. Approximately 30 minutes later Third District Officers received a call from a passerby of two males lying unresponsive on side of the street in the 300 block of Kenilworth Street. The two men were suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to their bodies and were pronounced dead on the scene.
