(KLTV) - The Shreveport Police Department has released the name of a man whose body was discovered floating in Cross Lake last week.

Shreveport police say that on May 24 at around 11 a.m.  they were called to an area of Cross Lake near the I-220 bridge because a body had been discovered. The body was that of an adult Caucasian male who appeared to have sustained significant trauma to the head. The remains were taken to the Caddo Parish Coroners Office for an autopsy.

Authorities have now identified the remains through a comparison of fingerprint data obtained from the Smith County Sheriff’s Office. He is 54-year-old Marion Lee Brown of Weatherford, Texas, police say. The Shreveport Police Department was contacted by the Smith County Sheriff’s Office after they learned a man feared missing from Weatherford fit the description of the body pulled from Cross Lake.  Those agencies are now working together and with other law enforcement agencies during the ongoing investigation.
