Leonard C. Williams Death – A boating accident that took the life of a Baton Rouge man on Saturday, July 11, near Bayou Pigeon is being investigated by the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries. The victim has been identified as 59-year-old Leonard C. Williams.
Williams was operating a 15-foot boat along Cross Bayou when the vessel began to sink.
