BAKER — Police have released the identity of a man whose body was found Thursday morning near an electric company substation off La. 19.

Police Chief Mike Knaps said the victim, Joshua T. Weathersby, 19, of Baker, appears to have been killed by a single gunshot, possibly between 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. Wednesday.

A man out for a morning walk found Weathersby’s body and flagged down an officer to report the discovery.

A motive for the shooting had not been determined Thursday afternoon, the police chief said.
