FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): One of the three men wanted by police in the death of a man who was the subject of a Statewide Silver Alert has turned himself in. Our Partners in News at ABC-21 report that 20 year old Cody Clements has surrendered to police.

The Allen County Coroner has identified the man found dead in the vehicle as 55 year old Shane Van Nguyen, who died as a result of blunt force trauma. His death has been ruled a homicide.

Two other suspects remain at-large and are considered dangerous.


On Sunday morning shortly after 5:00 am an officer of the Fort Wayne Police Department observed a suspicious vehicle in the area of Lake and Coliseum. The officer attempted to stop the vehicle at which time the vehicle sped away and a short pursuit began. A short time later the pursuit was terminated by the officer due to the speed and unsafe conditions.

Officers were then advised that there was an accident being reported in the area of Lake and Anthony and the description of the possible vehicle involved was the same as that of the vehicle that was involved in the pursuit.  Crews then arrived on the scene at the accident and located a vehicle in the rear of a home on Forest Park Blvd that had crashed through the rear fences.

Upon investigation, officers did find a victim inside the vehicle who was pronounced dead at the scene. Police say his death has been ruled a homicide.

Fort Wayne Police are now looking for three suspects connected to what happened: 20-year-old Cody Clements, 20-year-old Jacob Carreon-Hamilton, and 21-year-old Matthew Cramer II. Cramer and Clements are white, and Carreon-Hamilton is Hispanic. All three are considered dangerous.
