NPSO RELEASES IMAGE THAT LED TO PRESUMED RECOVERY OF KARA E. VAUGHN REMAINS AFTER MISSING APPROXIMATELY 28 YEARS

Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Deputies have released a fish finder/depth finder image of Kara E. Vaughn’s vehicle submerged in Cane River back in February according to Natchitoches Parish Sheriff Stuart Wright.

Zach Gagnard captured the image on his fish finder while fishing in Cane River back in February.
Zach and some of his friends thought it appeared to be suspicious so they contacted law enforcement to investigate the matter.

Little did Zach and his friends know, this image would solve the mystery of a 28 year old cold case missing persons report being investigated by the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office and presumed recovery of remains believed to be that of Kara E. Vaughn reported missing on November 3, 1993.

While speaking with Zach, he stated he had no idea that a person would be in the vehicle, but he is sad and relieved at the same time that family who have been waiting anxiously for 28 years to hear news about Kara now have closure.

We commend Zach Gagnard and his friends and sincerely thank him for his alertness recognizing something that appeared to be suspicious beneath the surface of Cane River.

Thank you Zach for a great job in assisting law enforcement in giving closure to the Vaughn family who have waited for decades for answers.

The presumed remains of Miss Vaughn was recovered by divers from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office and Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office on March 15, 2021.
