DNA Evidence from Burglary Matches Man Already Jailed

William Ward

A previously-unsolved case…closed…thanks to evidence recovered at a crime scene. And the suspect in the case is already behind bars, charged with several other crimes. The May 2011 case was a residential burglary at a home in the 3100 block of Cedar Creek Drive in the Cedars neighborhood. Police say someone had apparently broken out a back window to get inside. Blood evidence recovered from the scene was submitted to the North Louisiana Crime Lab for analysis. Detectives were told this week that the DNA had been matched to 20-year-old William Ward. The Shreveport man had been arrested May 24th and charged with a residential burglary in west Shreveport, but later bonded out. He was arrested again on September 30th for six more burglary counts. Ward is currently at Caddo Correctional Center, and has been charged with an additional count of simple burglary for the Cedar Creek crime.
