On March 1, a female parked her running vehicle in front of a local business on Airline Highway in LaPlace to run inside for a moment. While inside, her vehicle with her 8-year-old son in the back seat was driven away by an unknown subject. Deputies found the child unharmed along with the vehicle at a gas station on Highway US 51 near I-10 in LaPlace.
Crime Scene Technicians collected DNA evidence from the vehicle for analysis. Stout’s DNA was recovered from the vehicle. Detectives spoke to Stout on several occasions by telephone, but during the last phone conversation, Stout hung up on detectives. Since then, detectives’ attempts to contact Stout have failed.
