Report: Murder Suspect Caught With Victim’s Belongings On Trail Cam
After he was reported missing, John Hardy was arrested by local authorities, and charged in connection with the disappearance and murder of his former business partner Garrett Wilson. Prior to Hardy's arrest, human remains were discovered on property in northern Bossier Parish, on a piece of land that Hardy had a hunting lease on.
Earlier this week, those remains were identified as Garrett Wilson.
Now, KTBS is reporting that Hardy was photographed on a hunting trail cam on the property where Wilson's remains were found. The report says that the trail cam caught photos of Hardy standing near a burn pile, with clothes that match the description of what Wilson was last seen wearing.
In addition to the trail cam footage, they report that authorities were also able to use a "license plate reader" to track the vehicle Hardy was using when he was arrested. Their information places that same vehicle near the property where Wilson's remains were discovered.
Hardy, a former Bossier City Police Officer, and Bossier Parish Sheriff's Deputy, remains in custody, with a $1.3 million bond.
