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.

When the waters flood into the park, electrical damage is incurred. Additionally, there is damage to the irrigation system and the water spray ground area along Clyde Fant Parkway. The receding waters leave plenty of sand, mud and debris that also must be addressed.
