Suspect charged with obstruction in Bogalusa case
Press Release from Bogalusa Police Department (via Facebook):
As part of an ongoing extensive investigation, detectives with the Bogalusa Police Department developed a second suspect in the case involving the disappearance and murder of Dominique James.
Detectives obtained forensic evidence, establishing that the telephone of Juan Keys traveled from the residence of Derek Moss Jr. (Subject was already arrested on June 19, 2020, in this matter) to the location where the body of Dominique James was disposed of, and where the vehicle belonging to James was abandoned in a heavily wooded area west of Bogalusa. The telephone then, after remaining there for several minutes, traveled back to the residence of Moss. This new forensic evidence supported facts that detectives had established earlier in the investigation, that more than one person was involved in the disposal of James’ body. Probable cause was established that Juan Keys, a close friend and cousin of Moss, may have knowledge relating to the murder of James. A warrant was sought for the arrest of Keys for Felony Obstruction of Justice.
On July 20, 2020, Juan Keys was arrested without incident, and charged with Felony Obstruction of Justice, in the matter of the disappearance and murder of Dominique James. Keys denied any involvement in the matter.
