The Oklahoma City Police Department needs the public's help solving the death of a metro man. The victim was found murdered inside his southwest Oklahoma City apartment in late June.

Police released video on Friday of the victim with another man, hours before he was found dead. Investigators need to identify and question the man in the video.

Investigators have hit roadblocks in the unsolved murder of 62-year-old Oscar Osorio-Castenada. He lived and worked as the maintenance man at the Ashley Park Apartments on Southwest 74th Street near Interstate 240.

Apartment management went looking for the man when he did not show up to work one morning. They found the victim's body inside his apartment and his truck was missing.

“The homicide remains unsolved,” said Officer Megan Morgan, Oklahoma City Police Department. “But they were able to obtain some video footage of the victim the night before he was killed.”

In the video, Osorio-Castenada is wearing a light-colored shirt and pants. The other man, investigators need help identifying and locating, is wearing a hat with a logo and a work shirt. Police believe he lives near Southwest 59th and Shields and is described as Hispanic with dark, short hair and in his early or mid-20s.

“We’re asking for help in identifying who he is,” said Morgan. “So investigators can speak with him to see if he has any information that may help them solve this case.”

Police have not made any arrests and do not have suspects. However, they have found the victim's Ford F-150.

"The victim’s truck has been located,” said Morgan. “It was located in another state.”

If you recognize the man in the video or have information about the crime, you are asked to call the Oklahoma City Police Department’s homicide tip line at 405-297-1200.
