COLUMBIA — A man suspected in the death of a New Orleans doctor was captured Wednesday night in Moberly, New Orleans police said.

Bobby Troy, 20, was captured by U.S. marshals, said Remi Braden, director of public affairs for the New Orleans Police Department.

A Moberly Police Department news release said Troy was captured at about 11:30 p.m. Wednesday without incident and is currently being held at the Randolph County Justice Center. The man was originally thought to be somewhere in Columbia.

Troy was wanted in connection with the death of Brent Hachfeld, a 37-year-old optometrist who was attacked in the French Quarter and died of head injuries on Oct. 16, according to a news release issued by the New Orleans Police Department.

Troy was last seen on surveillance footage boarding a Greyhound bus to Columbia. Police thought he had family living there, the New Orleans release said.

Wyse should represent him. I'm sure the police said he did it only because he's a black male!
