New Albany police believe vehicle shown in video involved in man's murder at apartment complex

Posted: Updated:

NEW ALBANY, Ind. (WDRB) -- New Albany police have a lead in the city's only murder case this year. 

Troy Redd, 32, was found shot to death on a sidewalk outside the Cross Creek apartment complex in New Albany in the early morning hours of Aug. 24.

As investigators continue their work to track down the killer, Redd's daughter was born Friday. 

"She looks just like my son, identical to my son," said Redd's mother, Martean Brown. 

Brown says it's been hard living without Redd for the last month. 

"Go to bed crying. Wake up crying. Walk around crying," she explained. "Trying to keep my strength and my faith. It's been hard." 

Police say the recently released surveillance video could help them solve the case. It shows what investigators believe is a late model Dodge Journey turning around on Green Valley Road at an intersection near the apartment complex. Police say the video was taken around the same time officers were called to the scene of the shooting. 

"There was a vehicle matching a similar description identified by a witness in this case," said New Albany Police Chief Todd Bailey. 

He says the person or people inside the car may have been at the scene or have information about the case. 

"They still haven't caught who killed him, so I mean, they could be running around here waiting to try someone else out here," said one of Redd's neighbors. 

They and family members are eager for justice. 

"I want it bad. I want it bad... really bad," Brown told WDRB News. 

Redd is described as a role model and loving father, leaving three kids behind. Including the daughter who never got to meet him. 

"I'm gonna teach them... a legacy. That's what he is," Brown said. 

If you think you recognize the vehicle shown in the video and images in this story, you're asked to call New Albany crime tipline at 812-948-TIPS.
