Jeff Davis Parish, LA (KPLC) - Elliott Cassidy has been sworn in as district attorney of Jeff Davis Parish following the sudden death of Kevin Millican.

Millican died of a heart attack Wednesday at age 49, leaving behind his wife Kristy and their three children.

Millican had been Jeff Davis District Attorney since January, having run unopposed in November 2020.

Cassidy was Millican’s first assistant D.A.

“Kevin was a pillar of the community who worked hard for his constituents,” Cassidy said in a statement. “He was totally committed to both the D.A.’s office and to his family. The people of Jeff Davis Parish have lost a great Christian man, and we will make our best effort to try and fill his shoes.”

Judge Steve Gunnell swore Cassidy in Thursday morning, Cassidy confirmed to KPLC. Cassidy is the son of former Jeff Davis District Attorney Michael Cassidy, whom Millican replaced.
