City Workers Discover Murder at Mobile Park


UPDATE (10:20 a.m. 10/11) – The murder victim Monday morning has been identified as Justin Sanders, a 33-year-old man from Mobile, according to the Mobile Police Department.

ORIGINAL STORY – Mobile, AL (WKRG) – City workers found the body of a man next to a baseball dugout at sunrise. Crews usually start their Monday mornings cleaning up parks after weekend events.

“This park is pretty active on the weekend, on Saturdays you have a lot of events and football games so it is a pretty active park,” said MPD Spokesman Terrence Perkins. Police towed one red car from the scene as the park stayed closed for much of the day.

Right now, Mobile Police say there’s a lot they don’t know, including when exactly this accident happened.

“It’s still early on in the investigation, so we’re actively trying to piece together this investigation,” said Perkins. The name of the victim hasn’t been released. A city worker said it appeared the victim was shot several times.
