Man Arrested in Connection to Body Found

According to Sheriff Bobby J. Guidroz, “Dewayne F. Poullard, age 23, was arrested by the St. Landry Parish Sheriff’s Office in connection to the body found on Acadiana Road in the Opelousas
area.” On December 7, 2019, a body which was later identified as Chance Greene, was discovered in a gully on Acadiana Road in Opelousas. St. Landry Parish Detectives located evidence at the crime scene that enabled them to develop a suspect early in the investigation. During the interview with investigators, Dewayne Poullard confessed on video that he picked up Chance Greene from a relative’s residence in Opelousas and drove around the area before arriving at another residence. Once inside, they began to have a verbal disagreement. He believed that Chance Greene had a weapon and thought that his life may be threatened. Dewayne Poullard shot Chance Greene, then dumped his body in the gulley. Poullard was then transported to the St. Landry Parish Jail and booked on the charge of second degree murder.  Sheriff Guidroz added, “I want to commend my detective team who worked 26 hours straight to follow the evidence trail and make the arrest. Their hard work and dedication to finding the person that killed Greene paid off.” On behalf of Sheriff Bobby J. Guidroz, this is Deputy Chief Eddie Thibodeaux. All suspects are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
