    Body of White Female found in Lake Arthur - 31 January 2014

    I decided to isolate this topic since we don't know if the woman's death is related to the Jennings murders. I have a feeling it will turn out to be an eerie coincidence, and this way we avoid confusion down the road.

    Body Found in Jeff Davis Parish

    LAKE ARTHUR — Authorities are investigating the death of a woman whose body was found in a ditch across from the Lake Arthur water tower Friday afternoon.
    Few details were available late Friday. Lake Arthur Police Chief Cheryl Vincent said the body of the white female was discovered around 3 p.m. “A lady was walking the levee right there, which is called the ‘tracks,’ and thought they had seen a dead body in the little ditch area right there,” Vincent said. “They had a body in the water, laying face down.”

    The most recent discovery came just off of a triangular area of land at the intersection of West Sixth and Commercial streets in Lake Arthur.

    This time we can't release any names, we do know the identity of the female, but until we can contact the family we can't give any information on that."

    When asked if this could be tied to any other cases in the area, both Lake Arthur Chief of Police Cheryl Vincent and Jeff Davis Sheriff Ivy Woods say, "Not at this time". So far authorities can't even say if foul play is involved, because they're waiting on results from the coroner's office.

    Body found in Lake Arthur identified

    Investigators say she hadn't been seen for four or five days prior to the discovery. Although there were no apparent signs of trauma, the case is considered "suspicious."

    “It don’t appear to be associated with previous murders,” Woods said.
    Vincent said authorities were not yet available to release a cause of death.
    The unsolved murders of eight Jennings-area women occurred between May 2005 and August 2009. In 2009, authorities held a press conference in which they announced they believed the deaths were the work of a “common offender.” A multi-agency task force has been pursuing the cases for several years, but there has been no substantial new information released about the cases within the past three years

    The remains have been IDed:

    Lake Arthur Police today confirmed the identity of a body they found Friday afternoon as 27-year-old Lacie Fontenot.

    Rest in peace, Lacie.

    I've had no luck finding a COD for Lacie yet. I'm wondering if they are not releasing it....and if so, that really makes me wonder about whether this could be connected to the other killings...
