Shreveport, LA (KMSS) — Authorities have obtained a warrant for the arrest of a woman accused of murder in south Shreveport Saturday morning.
Just after 8:00 a. m., Shreveport officers were called to a caller reporting a dead person in the 9500 block of Mansfield Road. When police arrived, fire officials confirmed a woman's body have been found at the location. The woman was later identified as Rose Gonzales Coleman, 68, of Shreveport.
Coleman's remains were discovered by a jogger earlier that morning in a vacant parking lot. Upon making the discovery, the unnamed person alerted authorities. During the course of the investigation, information was received from officials with the city of Natchitoches Police Department relative to a vehicle that was registered to a Shreveport address, but had been found abandoned in their jurisdiction. Evidence inside the car suggested that the vehicle may have been involved in a crime.
The vehicle, a late model Chrysler 300, was registered to Coleman. Natchitoches officials told SPD they had taken into custody a woman who had been seen with Coleman's vehicle earlier-- the same woman who would be arrested for committing a number of other criminal offenses.
Investigators arrested Stacey Nichole Juneau-Blount, 28, of Shreveport after she was developed as a suspect in the death of Coleman. It's is alleged that Blount may have car jacked Coleman in Shreveport prior to her death.
Detective's with the Shreveport Police Department obtained an arrest warrant charging Blount with one count of second degree murder. Blount remains jailed in Natchitoches awaiting extradition back to Shreveport to face murder charges. The investigation into this murder continues at this hour.
