SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - The chief deputy of the Shreveport City Marshal’s Office has been sworn in as the interim marshal after the previous marshal’s body was recovered from the Gulf of Mexico.

On Monday, June 20, Chief Deputy James Jefferson was sworn in to fill Charlie Caldwell Jr.’s position as city marshal. Jefferson says he plans to have a news conference at a later date to give an official statement, and to update to public on when services will be held for Caldwell.

Caldwell’s body was found in the Gulf by a kayaker. On Saturday, June 18, he was positively identified. Caldwell had gone missing after he fell off a boat near Destin, Fla. the evening of Thursday, June 16. He was reportedly not wearing a life jacket.
