Mostafa Mohammed Abdalla
7123 Kingsbury Court
The suspect vehicle is a Dodge 1998-2002 full size truck, models 1500, 2500, 3500 metallic green in color missing its passenger mirror. Damage to the right front marker lens, headlight and bug deflector.
On Wednesday, November 1, 2017, the victim's family made a public plea for any information that could assist in the investigation. Soon after the public plea, numerous anonymous tips began coming in. Detectives followed up on those tips and as a result, they located a 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 pick up truck parked behind a residence within Hillsborough County that is believed to be the truck that killed the victim.
The truck was seized and taken to our Crime Scene Section for processing. Detectives have located the truck's owner and are conducting interviews.
HCSO would like to thank the Tampa Bay area media for your assistance in helping us push out this family's request for help!
The investigation continues.
