FL- Tampa Crime Stoppers seeks four in June 13 homicide

6-19-2009 Florida:

TAMPA — A reward is being offered for anyone with information leading to the arrest of four people sought in a June 13 homicide, according to Crime Stoppers of Tampa Bay.

On that date at about 3:30 a.m., 54-year-old Walter George Patey was found near N Elmore Street and E Adalee Street in Tampa. According to Crime Stoppers, a witness saw Patey get out of a light-colored car occupied by four other people. One of them hit Patey on the head with something while another shot him in the chest.

Patey died. He was a registered sex offender with a GPS monitor, which allowed Tampa police to track his location before his death.

Based on that information, police know that Patey was in Ybor City from about 7:40 p.m. June 12 until about 3 a.m. June 13. The GPS signal was lost near E Palm Avenue and N 10th Street, leading police to believe that was where the assailants picked up Patey.

Those sought are described as a 6-foot-2 black man in his early thirties with long dreadlocks; a 5-foot-9 black man in his early twenties with short hair; a 5-foot-7 black man also in his early twenties with bushy dreadlocks; and possibly a female driver.

Police say the vehicle is a four-door late-'80s, early-'90s cream-colored Oldsmobile or Buick.

Crime Stoppers asks anyone with information about the case to call 1-800-873-8477, report anonymously online at or text CSTB plus your tip to C-R-I-M-E-S (274637). Crime Stoppers is offering $1,000 if information leads to an arrest. ..Source.. by CrimeStoppers
