Baton Rouge Police have issued an arrest warrant for a man wanted in connection to the deadly crash that killed 20-year-old Eric Fabre on June 20, 2014.

Janneh L. Trench, 35 of Vacherie, LA is wanted in connection of the death of Fabre. Baton Rouge Police Traffic Homicide Investigators learned that after the crash Trench allegedly fled the scene and later arrived at an abandoned lot in the 2500 block of Erie Street.

Police say Trench then attempted to burn the red 2007 Chrysler 300, which he was driving, to destroy any evidence from the crash. Investigators found the burned out vehicle hours after the crash.

Fabre was riding his motorized scooter when police say Trench's vehicle rear ended the scooter. Fabre did not survive the crash.

The crash happened on Airline Highway at Old Hammond Highway in Baton Rouge, which is right by the Hammond Aire Shopping Center, just before 1 a.m.

Fabre was an LSU student who was working at Plucker’s on Nicholson Drive. He had been an employee there for three years.

    For the rest of today, we will continue to see a few pop up showers, particularly in the afternoon. Not everyone will see rain today. It will be a hot and humid day with highs reaching the lower 90s and heat indices in the mid to upper 90s. By the late afternoon into the early evening, we will start to cool down and showers will start to weaken and will come to an end. Through tonight, we will keep the rain chances low as all showers come to an end. We will have partly cloudy skies.
