The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office and Rochester Police Department need your help locating a man that may be connected to a missing person case.
Samuel Ortiz, 39, was last seen July 7 in downtown Rochester. Two days later, his car was found burned out in Brandon, Florida near Tampa.
Deputies say the license plate had been removed and the glove compartment was destroyed but there was no evidence of anyone being injured in the vehicle.
The case left authorities baffled because Ortiz has no ties to Tampa. Investigators say he has family in Orlando but hadn't been in touch with them.
Newly released surveillance video shows a man near where Ortiz's car was found. Investigators want to talk to him about what he may have saw.
Ortiz's badly decomposed body was found in a garage on Lakeview Park in Rochester on Saturday.
If you recognize the man in the video, call the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office at 813-247-8200.
