Female's body found in woods; police say no sign of foul play

SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - Police say they have found no evidence of foul play in the death of a female whose body was discovered in Shreveport.

The remains were discovered at 2:03 p.m. Thursday in woods on the north side of Bert Kouns Industrial Loop between Wallace Lake Road and Metroplex Drive, according to a detective on the scene and Caddo 911 dispatch records show.

That's immediately east of Interstate 49.

The time and exact cause of death are not yet known.

A detective on the scene earlier said authorities were investigating her death as a homicide until it is determined to be otherwise, which is standard procedure.

Early on, three Shreveport police units could be seen at the edge of woods adjacent to Academy Sports + Outdoors parking lot.

Dispatch records later showed seven police units at that location.

A Caddo deputy coroner arrived about 2:46 p.m.
