    Seller of Dirt Bike Murdered in New Orleans.

    Man trying to sell dirt bike on Facebook Marketplace shot, killed by supposed buyer in Louisiana: sheriff
    Nelson Oliveira

    A New Orleans man who was trying to sell a dirt bike on Facebook Marketplace was murdered after showing up to a meeting with a potential buyer, authorities said Monday.

    Joseph Vindel’s dead body was found with gunshot wounds early Monday morning inside his own car, which was abandoned in the city’s Garden District, according to the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office. A suspect identified as 20-year-old Jalen Harvey admitted he shot and killed the victim in nearby Jefferson Parish before taking the car to New Orleans, authorities said.

    Detectives believe the accused killer murdered Vindel during the course of their transaction Sunday, but an exact motive remains under investigation.
    Vindel, 29, left his house around 10 a.m. to sell the bike and “never returned from that transaction,” Sheriff Joseph Lopinto said at a news conference. The man’s family reported him missing later that day, triggering a multi-agency search for his whereabouts.

    During the investigations, detectives uncovered several Facebook messages showing Vindel and the suspect discussing the bike sale. The messages led authorities to a Jefferson Parish apartment complex where Vindel’s dirt bike was found in one of the patios, Lopinto told reporters.
    Harvey confessed to the murder and was taken into custody without incident, according to the sheriff.

    “A very sad situation,” Lopinto said, adding that Vindel was likely killed late Sunday morning or early in the afternoon.
    Harvey was expected to face a first-degree murder charge.

    If I don't have mutual friends with the person I usually don't deal with them. The only time I did we did the transaction in the parking lot at the local Police Station! If they don't agree to MY terms they can go pound dirt.

    Voting is the responsibility of a citizen, even if voting may not necessarily be obligatory. To not vote seems to me to be an abrogation of one's responsibility as a citizen, regardless of one's politics.

    I find it interesting, maybe even ironic, that Vindel has a "Blackout Tuesday" post on his social media considering who the alleged murderer is. Do whites get a free pass to riot because of this murder? Nope.

    Public lynching should be brought back as a form of lawful justice. Could even sell tickets to help state funding.

    So bring me up to speed on this black out thingy, Is this some sort of protest of beating the dead George Floyd horse to death?

    When I meet it is places that I know are in public, and enough people, shopping centers or gas stations for the most part. In Alaska, the police stations had certain areas that had cameras watching it 24/7, and the police station had cameras. Might still get shot, but at least the cops know.
