[do action=”brightcove”]1303402179001[/do]

The Seattle Police Department has released a surveillance video and still photos in connection with the recent homicide of Seattle hairdresser Danny Vega.

The video and still photographs show three people who appear to be disposing of a jacket in the area of Vega’s asssault, police said. Police say they could be connected to Vega’s slaying.

Vega, a 58-year-old South Seattle hairdresser and prominent member of the city’s Filipino community, died Sunday, 12 days after he was robbed and beaten by three teens in Seattle’s Rainier Valley. The assault happened in 4200 block of South Othello Street.

Vega’s family has said they believed Vega, who was gay, may have been targeted because of his sexual orientation.

Anyone who recognizes any of the people in the photos is asked to call Seattle Police homicide detectives at 206-233-5000. Anonymous tips are welcome.
