Man Shot to Death, His Body Dumped into Lake Bistineau

According to KTBS, a crappie fisherman found a man’s heavily tattooed body partially submerged in Lake Bistineau Sunday.

The man was shot multiple times and dumped off of the Highway 154 bridge.  Investigators located blood where they believe the man was pushed off of the bridge.

The man appeared to be in his 20s and was wearing shorts and socks.  His identity has not been released.

An autopsy was performed Monday in Little Rock, Arkansas, the results of which are forthcoming.

Investigators believe the man was from Shreveport and also believe he was shot in Shreveport.  They believe the killing was possibly gang-related though they did not provide any information as to how they formed their theory.

The Bienville Parish Sheriff’s Office and the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries assisted with the body recovery and searched the surrounding area for evidence.  

Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office and Shreveport police are leading a joint investigation into the man’s death.
