Man found on Mayo Road identified

Deputies identify him by fingerprints

Caddo Sheriff's deputies are investigating the case of a deceased person found in the 200 block of Mayo Road early this morning, said Sheriff Steve Prator.

Deputy Chris Woods was on patrol around 3:45 a.m. when he discovered the man in the roadway in the eastbound lane of travel. Woods said the man was lying face down partially on his bicycle and had a wound to his head. It is not yet known what caused the injury.

The man had no ID on his person so deputies from the Caddo Sheriff's Office Crime Scene Investigations Unit took fingerprints and matched them through the Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS). He was identified as Christopher B. Sheldon, 49, of Shreveport.

The Caddo Parish Coroner will conduct an autopsy to determine the cause of death. Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact the Caddo Sheriff's Office at 681-1116.

Many political “movers and shakers” attend the monthly meetings of the North Shreveport Business Association (NSBA). It’s common for the 100-plus tickets to the luncheon to sell out with a waiting list for cancellations. Such was the case for the mayoral forum on Tuesday, Oct 8.

Here we go again with meddling federal judges. The 5 th U.S Circuit Court of Appeals came down hard on Louisiana charter schools last week. Charter schools, that by definition are independent with major input from parents, now will have to bargain with teachers’ unions.

The Supreme Court of old was more majestic with few periods of confrontation. Just a decade ago, twothirds of Americans had great confidence in the Court. No more. There’s trouble brewing in those marble temple walls. Confidence in the workings of the court and the Justices themselves have dropped to a mere 50 percent approval rating.
