Task Force Releases New Evidence

Thursday, January 23, 2003





Since the Multi-Agency Homicide Task Force was formed in August 2002, it has been committed to releasing available information to the public, which may assist us in locating the person responsible for the four homicides currently under investigation. Today, the Task Force is releasing another important piece of information that may lead us to the killer.

This item is a sample of a shoe that investigators believe may have been worn by the person responsible for the Trineisha Dene Colomb homicide, which occurred in November 2002. The Task Force has developed evidence from the crime scene that indicates that the shoe is an Adidas brand; the imprint on the bottom of the shoe is the same for both the Give-N-Go or Buzzer Beater model, size 10 to 11. These shoes come in various color accents, as shown on the handout. The shoe is designed for basketball, but could be worn for other purposes. The Give-N-Go model can be purchased in Lafayette at Academy Sports and Shoe Carnival stores. The Give-N-Go style is also available in Baton Rouge at J.C. Penney and Sports Academy as well as the J.C. Penney in Metairie. Adidas representatives have stated that this shoe was manufactured in 2002 and is still being produced and sold at a cost of approximately $44. As you can see, we have only been able to obtain one actual sample of the shoe, but due to circumstances beyond our control, the Task Force has had difficulties acquiring shoe samples as well as photographs of the various models of the shoes.


Again, the Task Force is asking for the public’s assistance. We are asking the citizens of Lafayette and Baton Rouge to think back, and add this important piece of new information to the recently released profile, as well as the “person of interest” sketch.
