HPD Homicide Sergeant J. W. Belk and Officer
M. J. Miller reported:
On January 4, 1990, the body of Norman
Bostic, 39, was found dumped under the Sims Bayou Bridge in
the 13300 block of Hillcroft. The victim suffered six gunshot
wounds to his body. The victim's abandoned and bloody 1984 Chevrolet
pick-up truck was found later that day down the street from the
Metro Transit Authority Hiram Clarke Maintenance facility. The
original investigators also located firearm evidence in the grass
near the victim's residence. Investigators were able to obtain
a latent print from the victim's truck that belonged to the suspect.
Recently, a witness came forward and told investigators that shortly
after the murder, the suspect admitted to him that he had shot
and killed Bostic. The witness had specific details of the murder
that the suspect told him that was consistent with the evidence
in this case.
