A major multi-agency investigation continues today following the apparent murder of 47 year old Paul Stuckey, a veteran agent with the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries. Calling it a tragic loss, DWF Secretary Bob Barham said Stuckey received a call of night hunting sometime after midnight near St. Francisville.
''He sent a text to his supervisor to let him know that he was going on the call and that was the last communication until he was found early this morning," Barham said.
Barham said Stuckey was found by a fisherman, shot to death by the banks of the Mississippi River in East Feliciana Parish next to an old ferry landing.
"We are just sick at heart at the department, all of us are shocked and saddened this morning,'' said Barham.
Stuckey was an 18-year veteran of Wildlife and Fisheries and leaves behind a wife and three children. Louisiana State Police and West Feliciania Parish Sheriff's deputies are joining the investigation.
