This notice is archived content and this information may no longer be accurate.
Victim: Marterrance Albury, DOB: 05/24/2010, B/M

Mother: Johntea L. Williams, DOB: 6/10/78, B/F

Location: N. Florida Avenue just north of 109 Avenue

Date: 7/20/14 at 9:46 p.m.

Involved Vehicle: 2000-2004 dark green, possibly black Ford Expedition


A surveillance camera at a nearby car lot captured video of the vehicle fleeing southbound on Florida Avenue.

Based on the video, detectives are searching for a dark green, possibly black 2000-2004 Ford Expedition in connection with the 4-year-old's death.

Detectives have obtained the original video from a second surveillance camera, however it does not provide 100% certainty of how the young boy ended up in the roadway. Based on the injuries to the child, the physical evidence at the scene, the witness statements and different camera angles, it appears the child was the victim of a hit and run or a traffic crash. It is possible that the driver did not realize the child was hit.

Investigators are working to enhance the video to the release later today.

Citizens have called in several new leads on the vehicle involved due to the extensive media coverage. Detectives are working to identify the driver of a dark green, possibly black, 2000-2004 Ford Expedition. Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers 1-800-873-tips or the Tampa Police Department 813 231-6130.
