Body found: And signs point to missing Wahoo executive
A prominent Houston energy company leader and graduate of the University of Virginia has gone missing in New Orleans. Fifty-four-year-old Douglas Schantz disappeared mere hours after presenting a donation to Tulane University and going out with fellow company executives on Bourbon Street, according to the Houston Chronicle.
New Orleans media subsequently reported that Schantz was last seen leaving Razoo Bar & Patio around 2am and walking alone along Toulouse Street in the general direction of the Mississippi River. Thirty investigators have reportedly been assigned to the case.
At a Tuesday morning press conference, the New Orleans police chief reportedly revealed that subsequent security footage showed Schantz walking precariously along a two- to three-foot wide gangplank near a docked riverboat. And a reporter for the Times-Picayune reveals that a body found under a dock near the S.S. Natchez may be that of Schantz.
