Police are still searching for two more suspects in connection with the crime – Ernest Coleman, 30, 5’10”, and Roy Portis, 51, 6’1″, of Detroit. Police have not specified their connection to the crime.

Deontae was abducted by a man around 10:30 p.m. on Tuesday. Deontae’s cousin, who was with him at the time, has said that Deontae had taken money that a seemingly drunk man had dropped on the ground outside of a store while he was urinating on the side of the building.
