Missing Body of Baton Rouge Woman Found on Bogue Chitto River

Release Date: 01/12/2012

Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) Enforcement Division agents found the body of a missing woman on the Bogue Chitto River in St. Tammany Parish this morning, Jan. 12.

Agents found Kathy Holloway, 61, of Baton Rouge, at 7:30 a.m. around a quarter of a mile from where they found her capsized vessel on Dec. 28.  LDWF agents along with the St. Tammany Sheriff’s Office (STSO) and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) are still searching for her husband, William Holloway, 63.

The couple has been missing since Dec. 28, when a passing boater on the Bogue Chitto found a capsized vessel at 10 a.m.  The last known contact the Holloway’s had was at 3 p.m. on Dec. 27.  The Holloways were camping on the Bogue Chitto NWR.

The 14-foot aluminum flat bottom boat was found about a mile from the boat launch at Lock No. 3 Road on the Pearl River Navigational Canal.  LDWF has retrieved the boat and is investigating the cause of this boating incident.

Search crews from LDWF, USFWS and STSO have been searching during daylight hours since the report of the capsized vessel.  Search crews have deployed sonar technology to search the water, helicopters to search the surrounding land and banks, dragging equipment and search dogs.  Searchers have found a rifle, compound bow and a duffel bag full of clothes that also belonged to the Holloways since starting their search.

Kathy’s body was turned over to the St. Tammany Parish Coronor’s office for autopsy to give an official cause of death.

Release Date: 01/11/2012

Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) Enforcement Division agents arrested a convicted felon on Dec. 19 for allegedly possessing a firearm illegally and booked him into the Bienville Parish Jail.

Ray McKinney, 37, of Benton, was found outside of Jamestown by a landowner deer hunting on property without the landowner’s permission on Nov. 25.  When the landowner confronted McKinney, he ran into the woods and became disoriented spending the night in the woods.

Rescuers from the LDWF Enforcement Division and the Bienville Parish Sheriff’s Office located McKinney on the morning of Nov. 26 near Hwy. 507.

McKinney did not possess any of the required licenses, deer tags or hunter’s orange.  LDWF Enforcement Division agents cited McKinney on Nov. 26 for deer hunting without a basic or big game hunting license, without deer tags and failing to wear hunters orange.  Agents also seized a rifle from McKinney.

After further investigation, agents discovered that McKinney is a convicted felon and not allowed to possess a firearm as a condition of his probation.  A warrant was obtained for his arrest and he surrendered into custody on Nov. 26.

Possession of a firearm by a convicted felon brings a fine between $1,000 and $5,000 and between 10 to 20 years in prison.  Hunting without a basic or big game license and without hunter’s orange brings a fine of $50 and up to 15 days in jail for each offense.  Hunting without deer tags carries a fine between $100 and $350 and up to 60 days in jail.
