Police believe it was used by the people who killed Charles Boyer in Virginia Highland last week.
Boyer, 39, was shot dead around 10 p.m. on Nov. 22 outside an apartment building on Virginia Avenue near the intersection with Monroe Drive. He and his girlfriend were getting out of their car when three masked men demanded her apartment keys and started marching the couple to her apartment. Boyer was shot in a struggle, but his girlfriend escaped without injury, police said.
Police later found the Toyota SUV in a MARTA parking lot. It contained Boyer's cell phone and identification, Atlanta police Chief George Turner said Monday afternoon.
Police said the recovered the 2005 Toyota Highlander may be the same one witnesses reported seeing during two similar armed robberies within a 24-hour period.
