WINNFIELD, La. (AP) - Authorities say the body of a kidnap victim has been found in Winn Parish.

The Times reports Tony Procell's body was found Sunday afternoon in a shallow grave at the edge of Saline Lake in Kisatchie National Forest.

The man suspected in Procell's death, 34-year-old Robert Barthelemy, of Natchitoches, is in the Sabine Parish Detention Center charged with aggravated kidnapping and home invasion. Charges are expected to be upgraded to first-degree murder.

Authorities say the 25-year-old Procell had been missing since around 10 a.m. Tuesday when Barthelemy, a 2-year veteran of the Natchitoches Police Department, led him out of his Many home at gunpoint. They say the abduction was captured on the home's security camera.
