NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – It’s been a difficult week for the family of Ryan Trosclair. Four years ago, he went missing. Three days after the search began, Trosclair’s burning body was found in a field on Dwyer Road. To this day, no arrest has been made.
CrimeStoppers offered a $7,500 reward for information that led to the arrest of suspect Francisco “Chico” Amaral. But Trosclair’s family members say Amaral moved to Brazil. They also believe other people were involved in the crime.
Wednesday’s Wheel of Justice report also included the search for Eric Falkins who is accused of shooting a man in Gert Town on Sunday. According to the NOPD, the attack happened at the corner of Olive Street and South Carrollton Avenue. At last word, the victim was hospitalized in critical condition.
If you have information on either case in Monday’s Wheel of Justice report, call CrimeStoppers at 504-822-1111. You don’t have to give your name, and you could receive a reward.
