Bossier Sheriff’s Office detectives are continuing their investigation of a body that was found in South Bossier Sunday night, as preliminary indications show no signs of trauma or foul play.
Bossier patrol deputies responded to a call just after 8 p.m. Sunday night after someone found the body of a man on the ground near Foxskin Bayou not far from the road around the 3400 block of Johnson Koran Road. The man was identified as Steven R. Simpson, 47, of Camp Joy; next of kin have been notified.
Bossier Crime Scene Investigators and detectives began their investigation and saw no obvious signs of foul play, and the Bossier Parish Coroner’s Office confirmed those finding with the preliminary results of their autopsy. While there was no initial indication of trauma or foul play, Bossier detectives await the results of the full autopsy and toxicology, which could take from 10 to 14 days, to see what possible other causes, including possible alcohol or drug use, or the weekend’s cold temperatures played a factor in his death.
Detectives determined that Simpson was last seen about 9:30 p.m. the night before on Dec. 9 during a party at a nearby residence. Simpson’s body was found a short walking distance from the residence. Detectives are continuing their investigation to determine just what happened and are asking anyone with any information about this case to please contact the Bossier Sheriff’s Office at (318) 965-2203.
