Pollock man wanted in connection with homicide in Mississippi

Joshua Lee Fletcher (GPSO)

GRANT PARISH, La. (GPSO) - The Grant Parish Sheriff’s Office is seeking the public’s help in locating Josh Fletcher.

Deputies think that Fletcher may be connected with the murder of 20-year-old Samuel Smith of Arkansas last month in Mississippi. Through social media posts, we've learned Smith's family also lived here locally at one point. Smith was found dead in a lake after telling his family he was going camping. Detectives believe Smith possibly picked up Fletcher in Louisiana along the way, but it's unclear if he knew him or not. Fishermen found Smith's body on June 29th.

Fletcher is 32-years-old and from the Pollock area. Anyone that has information on his whereabouts is asked to call (318) 627-3261.
