Car found in Waveland connected to New Orleans murder


A car found abandoned in Waveland is wanted out of New Orleans in connection to a homicide according to Waveland Police Detective Eddie Peterson.

Waveland police received a call about a suspicious vehicle on Camellia Street Tuesday evening. Officers checked the tag number and found New Orleans police were searching for that car in connection with a homicide Peterson said. Waveland Police called NOPD and a detective came to Waveland and had the car towed to New Orleans.

A Sea Coast Echo reporter on the scene Tuesday night said the car was a dark blue Honda Accord with a license plate number that matched a vehicle sought by New Orleans police.

Media reports in New Orleans say a 2007 Honda Accord with the same license plate number belongs to 27-year-old Fernando Eyzaguirre who was found shot to death Sunday. According to a NOPD news release the victim was found shortly before 6:30 Sunday morning in the 5100 block of General DeGaulle Drive in Algiers.

Waveland police could not confirm any information about the shooting and referred questions to New Orleans police.
