MILTON -- Authorities are seeking a search warrant for a vehicle impounded last night in Milton that could be linked to the grisly discovery of an apparent murder victim in the city on Monday.
Milton Deputy Police Chief Charles Paris said his department and State Police have applied for a warrant to search the white Audi located last night on Adams Street in Lower Mills, a section of Dorchester near Milton.
Paris could not say if the vehicle had blood on it. He said it was impounded because it matched witness accounts of a vehicle seen in the area of Monday night's discovery of a mutilated body of a young man, who has not been identified.
Police have also impounded a second vehicle, a dispatcher said. But no further details were available on the second vehicle.
The mystery in the case deepened today when the police released a photo of the note they discovered on the victim's person. The note appears to show the name "Delonte Tisdale," though the letters of the first name are difficult to decipher. The note also read, "A lunch," and included a scribbled signature and the date "10/19/2010."
Paris said the name "Delonte Tisdale" has not come up in any area school systems or in the state criminal records database.
He said police have interviewed numerous witnesses but have yet to speak with a person of interest in the slaying.
