MERRILLVILLE, Ind. (CBS) — Investigators in northwest Indiana are hoping newly released surveillance video footage will help them catch the people who shot and killed a 27-year-old man in November, and left his body in a freezer at a Merrillville meat market.
Andrew Fugate was working at Piatak Meats at 6200 Broadway in Merrillville shortly before 5 a.m. on Nov. 4, when two people went into the store, where they shot and killed him.
Fugate’s body was found about two hours later, inside a meat freezer. He had been shot in the head three times.
Police and Fugate’s family said he was at the store that early every day, because he was the one who prepared the store before it opened every day, by making sausage, slicing meat, and getting the market ready for customers.
