LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - A dead body is found in Acadia parish and police may have a lead. At around 2:30 PM Wednesday the Acadia Parish Sheriff's Department received a call, that workers weed eating the grass between mile markers seventy-two and seventy-three had discovered a woman's dead body.
Shortly after, authorities from Acadia, Jeff Davis, and Calcasieu Parish began an investigation and were later joined by a forensics team from the F.B.I office in New Orleans.
Earlier that day the Jennings Police department received word that Necole Guillory, a woman in her mid to late twenty's, had been missing since Sunday.
"At 2:00 PM, our task force began interviewing the person who had reported her missing. About thirty minutes into the interview we got a call from Acadia parish. Roadway workers discovered a body," said Jeff Davis Sheriff Ricky Edwards.
Police have yet to determine if these cases are related, but said given the recent history of the seven women found dead in Jeff Davis parish, the possibility that the body found is that of the woman reported missing, certainly cannot be ruled out.
"I guess we want to assume that it could be. We are taking precautions, but we are also taking action," said Sheriff Edwards.
The body has been taken to Calcasieu Parish where authorities are hoping a positive identification can be made.
"The Acadia Parish Coroner's office is sending the body to Calcasieu for an autopsy and for identification," said Sheriff Edwards.
His officie also issued this statement Thursday morning, "Investigators from Acadia, Calcasieu & Jefferson Davis Parishes, as well as Jennings Police Department, Acadia and Calcasieu Coroner's Office, 15th and 31st District Attorney's offices, LA State Police, LA Attorney General's Office and the FBI are aggressively working together to solve this recent homicide. As the victim has not been positively identified and we are still in the initial stages of the investigation, it would be premature at this stage and possibly detrimental to the investigation to make any statements or draw any conclusions." The statement goes on to say that more information will be made available as the investigation continues."
