DESOTO PARISH, LA (KSLA) - Investigators from DeSoto Parish have arrested 34-year-old Brian Douglas Horn, a registered sex offender, for the alleged murder of a 12-year-old Stonewall, LA boy.

Investigators say Justin M. Bloxom was last seen at a home on Douglas Lane in Stonewall, Louisiana.

Police say that Horn, a taxi driver who worked out of Bossier City, allegedly murdered the boy.

Efforts to track Horn down led to Action Taxi on Barksdale Boulevard in Bossier City, where employees were told by police to be on the lookout for him and to call immediately if he showed up, which he did a short time later.

However Horn didn't stay long, leaving his taxi behind. It's the one authorities believe was seen near where the little boy's body was found.

Horn's boss said he worked for Action Taxi for just 10 days. He said Horn kept to himself and  didn't make friends. Horn's boss knew he was a registered sex offender, but felt he couldn't discriminate against him when it came to giving him job.

Authorities say Horn was properly registered as a sex offender in DeSoto Parish.

He is now charged with 2nd degree murder.
