Holtz said the department’s Homicide Unit took over the investigation, adding detectives located surveillance video that showed what appeared to be a male wheeling Baker into the lot in the shopping cart three days earlier at approximately 3:30 a.m.

The same person was then seen on video walking north of Fifth Street several minutes later, Holtz said, noting that video is now released. He said the department is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the person in the video.

“Detectives are requesting the public pay special attention to his walk and jacket,” he said. “They believe the person is familiar with the East End, and may reside there.”
