Funeral services for Dylan Poche, the 18-year-old Bass Fishing League angler who was stabbed to death Saturday night, are scheduled for Thursday at 2 p.m. at Freedom Life Church in Natchitoches, La. Visitation will take place at Freedom Life beginning at 5 p.m. Wednesday.
An 18-year-old, Andrew Jacob Wallace, was arrested on a charge of second degree murder by the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office. He is being held without bond.
Poche, who had finished fourth in a recent BFL Cowboy Division tournament on Toledo Bend, was stabbed just before midnight at a Lake Sibley boat ramp. A witness, Juddy Hamous, told The Shreveport News that the altercation that led to the stabbing resulted after Wallace and others drove into the ramp’s parking lot and proceeded to spin gravel onto Poche’s vehicle. Poche and others yelled at them to stop. Witnesses, including Poche’s friend Hamous, allege that Wallace then approached Poche and stabbed him once in the upper torso.
According to Hamous, Caleb Poche, Dylan’s younger brother, chased the assailant’s car and it flipped over as the occupants tried to escape. The persons inside were pinned in the wreckage until police arrived and freed them.
Investigators found the knife used in the slaying on Monday afternoon.
