Charred remains found near a well site in DeSoto Parish over the weekend have been identified as those of a Shreveport man missing since mid-February.

According to DeSoto Parish Sheriff Jayson Richardson, it was 25-year-old Tony Holmes whose body was found on a well site off White Springs Road in Frierson just before 10:30 a.m. Saturday. 

Holmes was reported missing on February 25, three days after he was last seen by family members.

Sheriff Richardson says they are now working with the Shreveport Police Department to determine where the homicide took place, which will determine which agency will take the lead on the investigation. 

Richardson says while the death has been ruled a homicide, the exact cause of death has not yet been determined.
