East Feliciana arrests two in connection to body found shot in car

On August 6, 2021, deputies with the East Feliciana Parish Sheriff’s Office responded to a call of a car in the ditch off Hwy. 10 east of Clinton near the Amite River.

That’s when deputies found the body of Lance Gilmore, 22, of Greensburg, inside of the car shot to death.

The East Feliciana Sheriff’s Office was able to arrest two for murder: Noah Williams, 18, and Aaron Hurst, 20, both of Greensburg.

“Although I cannot discuss specific evidence developed during our investigation, I am confident the evidence will lead to the conviction of both these individuals for murder,” said Sheriff Jeff Travis.  “I would like to thank a couple agencies for their help. The La. State Police Crime Lab and St. Helena Parish Sheriff’s Office.  The working relationship between my Office and Sheriff Nathaniel Williams’ Office is the perfect example of how agencies should work together. Their help with this homicide investigation was key to making these arrests in a timely manner” said Sheriff Jeff Travis.

Sheriff Travis said the St. Helena Parish Sheriff’s office was a big help in this investigation.

This is an ongoing investigation.
