“When we got the news that he didn’t show up to work on Monday, that’s when we knew something was wrong," said brother Michael Saint Louis.

Saint Louis' body was found February 19 in a pond behind the Home Depot in Zephryhills.

Investigators say Saint Louis was last seen driving a 2015 Chevrolet Sonic LT 4-door, gray in color, bearing the Florida tag EQSW64. The vehicle has front-end damage on the passenger side. It was last seen on State Road 429 in Lake County, Florida on February 3.

The investigation has revealed that the vehicle has traveled throughout Florida.

With no word on a potential suspect or motive, the Florida Sheriff's Association has added $5,000 to the reward, bringing the total to $8,000, for information leading to an arrest.

“Bring justice to the family because this person needs to be off the streets," said Michael Saint Louis.

Anyone with any information regarding the identity of the suspect(s) and who wants to be eligible for a cash reward is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS (8477).
