Reward Doubled in Massenburg Murder Case


Crimestoppers has doubled the cash reward for information related to the shooting death of 18-year-old Joesph Massenberg to $5,000, the organization announced Monday. Police also said they are now searching for a white four door SUV in connection with the incident.

 

New Orleans police Superintendent Ronal Serpas said Crimestoppers has only received three or four phone calls related to the Leonidas neighborhood crime, which he believes is not enough.

 

“If you saw something, if you know something, no matter how small, it could be the difference we need,” Serpas said.

 

Massenburg, who recently had moved to New Orleans to work as an AmeriCorps volunteer, was gunned down the night of April 1 as he walked near the intersection of Eagle and Birch streets.

 

Serpas said he had no reason to believe Massenburg’s death was related a wave of weekend crime in the Leonidas area.

 

The first incident, a double shooting near the corner of Jeannette and Willow streets on Saturday night, left one man with a gunshot wound to the leg, and another with a gunshot injury to the arm. The shooting occurred around 10:41 p.m., police said.

 

The next day a stabbing in the 8500 block of Green Street, left a 40-year-old man dead after a fight with his girlfriend. He was found lying in the street suffering from multiple knife wounds around 5 a.m., Sunday morning. Officials transported the man to the hospital, where he later died.

 

Police charged Octavia Gary, 32, with second-degree murder for allegedly stabbing the man to death. She was also booked with violation of a protective order.

 

Hours later, around 4:19 p.m., a double shooting near the corner of Jeannette and Monroe streets left one man with a gunshot wound to the leg. The other victim’s condition is unknown, police said. He was taken to the hospital.

 

Anyone with information about these incidents, or about Massenburg’s murder, is asked to call Crimestoppers at 504.822.1111.
