Sgt. Paul Stuckey was last heard from as he was responding to a night hunting complaint a little after 2 am on Friday. Stuckey had worked for the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries for 18 years, so this was just a standard call for him. However, now he is dead from a gunshot to the chest.
A local fisherman found Stuckey around 7 am on Friday morning by the old ferry landing outside of St. Francisville. When deputies arrived on the scene they found Stuckey next to his work vehicle with a shotgun wound to the chest. They called LDWF. An investigation is underway.
"Our hearts go out to the Sgt. Stuckey family and his extended family of fellow agents will be there to help them through this tough time," said Col. Winton Vidrine, head of the LDWF Enforcement Division. From WDSU.com .
