NEW ORLEANS - Police are looking for a 31-year-old man in connection with the killings of a Reserve couple whose bodies were found in the water, tied down with a heavy weight.

Amir Ybarra, whose nickname is 'BLUE,' is wanted on obstruction of justice charges for disposing of evidence in the case, according to police.

Kenneth and LaKeitha Joseph were reported missing on Feb. 19. Their bodies were discovered roughly two weeks apart in March in the Intracoastal Waterway in New Orleans East.

Documents showed the victims' feet were bound by blue nylon rope. There was also evidence that they were tethered to 30-pound kettle bells.

The minivan the Josephs were last known to be driving was eventually found in College Park, Georgia, near Atlanta.
