Shreveport Cold Case Re-Ignites With Arrest Warrant for 2010 Murder Suspect
A cold case re-ignites with an arrest warrant for a murder suspect.
Shreveport police say 25-year-old Surcorey Odums has been linked to the 2010 murder of 41-year-old James Pouncy. Pouncy was found inside an SUV at the intersection of Wallace Avenue and Fuller Street in February of that year. He’d suffered numerous gunshot wounds, and was taken to a local hospital, where he later died. Over the course of the investigation, police couldn’t find enough evidence that would allow them to formerly name a suspect in the murder.
This past May, investigators got a substantial break in the case, when a .40-caliber handgun recovered during an undercover operation was linked to Pouncy’s murder. It belonged to Odums, who’s in jail in another jurisdiction on unrelated charges.
During previous interviews, it was believed that Odums and Pouncy were involved in a dispute just days before Pouncy’s death. Odums will be extradicted back to Shreveport to face a second-degree murder charge. His bond is set at $250,000.
