HOUSTON - Dameon Johnson, 36, was found murdered
five years ago Monday. Now, his family and homicide investigators are
asking the public's help to track down the possible killer(s).
Johnson's family is holding a press conference Monday morning at 10 a.m.
police said the father of two was fatally shot within a few minutes of
leaving his home to head to work at an AutoZone, where he was a manager,
on March 19, 2013. He kissed his fiancee goodbye at 6:45 a.m. and 911 got a call about him at 7:01 a.m., investigators said.
The call was originally reported as a wreck,
but when officers got to the scene in the 8200 block of Peachtree they
found Johnson's body in a ditch on the other side of the street from his
pickup truck, which was still running and not damaged.
Detectives said they think something
happened while Johnson was on the road -- possibly a chase or
confrontation. Officials said they found skid marks on a nearby street,
but they don't know if that's related to the killing.
Johnson's family said they want answers and justice.
Anyone with information about the slaying is
asked to call the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime
Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
