Deputies said a nearby traffic crash was connected to the incident. The occupants of the car at fault, a dark blue Nissan Sentra, fled the scene, according to HCSO. Detectives believe the three men observed in the surveillance video were traveling in that car. 

"If you believe you know who these men are, please speak up," said Sheriff Chad Chronister. "We are working to solve why a man was killed and these men could have valuable information that could be the missing piece."

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office at (813) 247-8200.
