Police have found the vehicle that belonged to a Krystal restaurant district supervisor found slain in his west Mobile apartment.

The body of Reginald Hopson, 33, a native of Meridian, Miss., was found Wednesday. His co-workers had called police after Hopson failed to show for work since Monday.

State forensics scientists say Hopson died of multiple gunshot wounds.

Mobile police spokesman Cpl. Marcus Young said Hopson's car was found about midnight Wednesday a few blocks from where he lived.

Young said detectives are following several leads, but have not named a suspect.

Hopson was district supervisor for three of the chain's Mobile restaurants. He is the 11th homicide victim this year in Mobile. Arrests have made in the first 10 homicides.

Funeral services for Hopson will be 1:00 p.m. Saturday in Porterville, Miss.
