Police hope trucker dashcam footage could help solve I-75 homicide


Police are seeking truck drivers help to collect information after a fatal shooting involving two motorists on Interstate 75 in Miami Township, OH.

The incident happened July 27, around noon when an unknown suspect in a car shot and killed 64-year-old motorist James L. Brown.

Authorities are asking those who were near the Austin Boulevard exit Monday afternoon to come forward if they have any information that could help the case

“The investigation is ongoing and detectives are following every lead and looking into any information received,” said Pat McCoy, Miami Township police public information officer. “We are encouraging anyone who saw the shooting or if they have any information about the event to please contact us. We also want any truck driver who was on I-75 south between the 44 and 42 mileposts at the time of the shooting and they had a dash camera in their truck which was recording to please contact us as well.”

Authorities do not believe the incident was a result of road rage, but are still considering all possibilities.

Several 911 calls described the scene Monday afternoon. One caller reported the shooting as a drive-by started by someone in a blue Jeep with a man shooting out the back. As a result of the shooting, some vehicles had to swerve to avoid bullets. Another caller said the Jeep exited the highway just a few miles down the road but lost sight as it left.

Police detained three individuals on Monday but all were determined not to be involved with the crime.
