Witnesses told police there was a disturbance in the alley the night of Birdi's death and that two vehicles fled the scene.

Police believe the man they are searching for is linked to a grey Nissan Pathfinder that will have significant front-end damage.

The second vehicle of interest is believed to be a brown Chevrolet Venture from about 2002 to 2004.

Anyone with information is asked to call police or contact Crime Stoppers.
