  • Police are asking the public's help in identifying two men who they said were involved in the Oct. 28 murder of Michael Leger in the Glasgow Court Trailer Park.
    A composite sketch was released earlier this week by New Castle County Police of the suspect's accomplice who they said was riding in the passenger seat of the car.
    The car that was being driven by the suspect that night is described as a dark colored, two door boxy vehicle with a possible unknown Delaware registration.
    On Oct. 28 at 12:16 a.m., paramedics were called to the 100 block of Garnett Street for a cutting that had just occurred, and when they arrived, they found that Leger had been assaulted and was suffering from a large upper body wound, police said.
    Leger, 25, was later pronounced dead at the Christiana Hospital.
    Further investigation into the homicide revealed that the suspect was driving through the Glasgow Trailer Park with no headlights on, police said. Leger saw the vehicle as it was driving down the 100 block of Garnett Street and yelled at the driver to turn the headlights on due to his concern for his children.
    A verbal altercation began, police said, and the driver then fled in his car while making threatening comments.
    Minutes later, the driver returned with an accomplice and immediately confronted Leger.
    The two men began assaulting Leger and as a result, Leger received a fatal wound to his upper body.
    Both suspects are described as African American males.
    The passenger of the car is described as being between 5-feet, 10-inches and 6-feet, 3-inches tall, about 250 pounds and having a boxy build.
    Investigators are seeking any information as to the identity of both suspects and the vehicle.
    To offer any information, contact the New Castle County Police Department at (302) 395-8110 and ask for Detectives M. Bradshaw or S. Legenstein.
    Citizens can also provide a text tip at 847411 (TIP411) or contact the detectives via e-mail at mjbradwhaw@nccde.org or slegenstein@nccde.org.
