DeSoto Parish Sheriff Jayson Richardson says the body found Tuesday afternoon had multiple gunshot wounds.
Richardson says the body of the white male had been there in the woods off Asseff Road near Interstate 49 for over a week. In addition to having been shot, the man’s body had also been wrapped in plastic.
The death is being investigated as a homicide, and Richardson says the discovery should solve a missing person’s case out of another state.
The victim’s name is being withheld until next of kin is notified.
