Victim identified in Baton Rouge murder
BATON ROUGE- The victim of a murder early Tuesday morning in Baton Rouge has been identified.
Police say 45 year-old Everette Crosley was found lying in the road in the 1600 block of North 38th around 1:10 a.m.
They say Crosley was shot twice.
Neighbors described him as a jack of all trades.
"He helped do landscaping work, helped out everybody he can," Gregory Peck said. "He was pitching in and helping out old ladies. He was a good samaritan in the area."
"It hurts to lose a friend," Phyllis Eisley said. "He was like family to everybody."
He was taken to the hospital, where he later died.
Crosley was reportedly a transient but had been staying in an abandoned residence near where he was found.
No word yet on any suspects or a motive at this time.
Anyone with any information on this murder, is urged to call the Baton Rouge Police Department.
