Body found in Toledo Bend Lake identified as 32-year-old man from DeRidder; autopsy pending


MANY, Louisiana — Authorities say a body found in Toledo Bend Lake is that of a 32-year-old man from DeRidder.

Multiple news outlets report the man's body was pulled from the lake just south of Many close to a private peer Sunday morning. Authorities have identified the man as Joshua Kyle Justis. Authorities say Justis was last heard from on June 17.

Authorities say the body appeared to have been in the water for several days. A missing person's report was filed Saturday in Beauregard Parish.

Sabine Parish Deputy Coroner Ron Rivers says there were no signs of foul play but they are investigating Justis' cause of death.

His body was sent to University Health in Shreveport for an autopsy.
