Man sought after gay Nashville murder victim’s car found in North Carolina

Suspect Christopher Gadsden was arrested in New York City

Police are looking for a man after the car of a gay dead Nashville, Tennessee victim was found in North Carolina.

Last week the body of Deon L. Brown was discovered in the parking lot of a West Nashville trucking lot. He was riddled with stab wounds, and authorities are treating the death as a possible hate crime.

Law enforcement want to speak to Christopher Gadsden. According to WKRN.com Brown’s car, a white Pontiac G6, was discovered in Hickory, North Carolina. Police believe Gadsden, who has family in Fayetteville, North Carolina, drove the vehicle to Hickory.

Hickory is approximately a three-hour drive from Fayetteville.

The police want to know how Gadsden got the car and what, if anything, the 26-year-old knows about Brown’s death.

Anyone seeing Gadsden, or knowing his whereabouts, is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463 or West Precinct Investigations at 615-862-7385.

Brown was dressed as a woman when his body was located. There has been no reports of him identifying as transgender. He does not appear to have identified as trans from his social media and friends.

There was no identification on the cosmetologist, and it took police a day until they were able to release his identity.

A candlelight vigil in his memory was held on 18 November.
