1)The body of Dennis Sylve, 23, of 1509 Judah Street, was found when officers responded to reports of gunfire around the 1600 block of Betty Street.
Sub-set 1)Another Marrero man, Clarence Jones, 50, sustained two gunshot wounds after going through the area on his way home
2)In the New Orleans incident, someone intentionally ran over a 33-year-old Slidell resident with a car, killing him at the intersection of Pauger and North Rampart streets, authorities said. Devin Legaux died on the scene from rollover-type injuries.
Both had criminal records: Legaux had a couple of run-ins with the law during his life. Sylve had a criminal history that included arrests for simple burglary, illegal carrying of a firearm, possession of a stolen firearm, battery on the police, home incarceration violation, interfering with a police investigation, disturbing the peace and juvenile status offenses, as well as municipal and traffic charges
That's right - multiple municipal and traffic charges. Why do they bother reporting this stuff. Is one of the readers suddenly going to realize, "Oh my god, it's that Dennis Sylve. I have valuable insight into his killing that I would never have provided. Thankfully they clarified his identity by divulging his tainted past."
