Legonte Detray Turner Jr., 23, of Hammond is wanted on a rape charge by Hammond police, a city spokesperson said Monday, and the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office wants him in connection with an alleged murder.

After an arrest warrant was issued Nov. 4 on one count of second-degree rape, the city police learned the sheriff’s office wanted him on two counts of accessory to second-degree murder and two counts of obstruction of justice.

The city police identified him as a rape suspect after being notified by the Southeastern Louisiana University Police Department that a female student said she had been raped at a location off-campus.

Call Detective Cody Taylor at 985-277-5756 or email to Taylor_CF@ hammond.org. Crime Stoppers of Tangipahoa’s anonymous tip line is 1-800-554-5245.
