    Fairfax County police are hoping a photo of a pickup truck helps them nab a killer, who’s eluded them for more than a year.

    Yesterday, they released that picture of a white truck they believe is the vehicle four intruders used to drive away from a Centreville mansion, where a handyman was shot and killed during a home invasion.

    Jose Cordona was killed last May. The 39-year-old husband and father of two worked for the family that lived in the home on Compton Road and had been running errands that day. Police say he returned to the house just as the intruders were about to make their move. Investigators say a struggle for a gun ensued, and Cordona was shot.

    Police are now looking for four susepcts: two actual intruders, one person who drove the pickup truck, and another person who was nearby. There is a $5,000 reward for information leading to their arrests.
