Waterford Township police are seeking the public’s help in finding a man wanted in connection with the early-morning murder of a 28-year-old Waterford man in the vicinity of M-59 and Voorhies on Sunday, July 31 around 2:30 a.m.
Police say James Dean Odle was shot several times near S. Lynn and Lakeview streets.
Odle was found in a nearby yard, where he had died, police said.
Odle was walking on S. Lynn Street when a white GMC Acadia or white Chrysler Pacifica-type vehicle pulled alongside of him. A suspect reportedly exited the back seat of the vehicle and shot him several times.
The suspect is described as a thin black male of medium height and unknown age, wearing a black do-rag, black T-shirt, and white and tan checkered shorts.
“There’s more than one (person involved in the shooting) because he (the person who did the shooting) was a passenger in the vehicle,” said Waterford Police Sergeant Scott Good, the department’s public information office. “Whether the driver had the knowledge of what would transpire or not is a different story.”
If you have information about the murder, contact Waterford Police Detective Greg Drumb at 248-618-6053.
