Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries agents are the lead investigating body for the single vessel fatality that occurred on Kincaid Lake on November 3, 2019, in Rapides Parish.

The body of Lee R. Haynes, 56, of Lena was recovered and turned over to the Rapides Parish Coroner’s Office to determine an official cause of death. At the times Haynes was found, he was not wearing a personal flotation device.

Agents were notified about an abandoned vessel in Kincaid Lake Sunday morning.

Agents believe that Haynes was setting out fishing lines when he fell overboard and was unable to get back in the vessel.
