New Orleans police now have a new person of interest in the hit-and-run death of NOPD officer Rodney Thomas.  They released a photo of the man and hope someone will recognize him and contact detectives.

They know it’s a bad photo, but they say the man may have information about the case.  At the time of the photo’s release, they were not calling the man a suspect but rather a person of interest.

Police also are looking for a car that they say was at Best of the Best Automotive and Sales on the morning of July 7th, a few hours after Thomas was killed on the I-10 highrise bridge.

Police found a white Porsche that they believed was involved in the officer’s death at the same business.
