Search for remains in Gonzales

GONZALES, LA (WAFB) - In Ascension Parish, investigators spent a second day searching for the remains of Sylviane Lozada. On Wednesday, the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office focused its search in an area off I-ten, just a little further east than Tuesday’s search in Gonzales. Sylviane’s husband, Oscar Lozada, reportedly confessed to her murder after arriving back in Baton Rouge last week.

Authorities spent Tuesday searching an area off I-10 in Gonzales for clues in the Lozada murder case. EBRSO is leading the investigation, which is taking place in Ascension Parish.

One police source confirmed they are searching the area for Lozada’s remains.

EBRSO spokeswoman Casey Hicks would only say deputies are working on “an attempted recovery in the Lozada case.”

Lozada’s husband, Oscar, is accused of killing her and dismembering her body seven years ago. Oscar Lozada was arrested last month in Mexico and was extradited last week back to Baton Rouge, where authorities claim he confessed to the murder.

Detectives released more details over the weekend surrounding the 2011 murder of Sylviane Finck after Oscar Lozada, who was interviewed for several hours Friday, October 5, reportedly confessed.

On July 18, 2011, concerned family members and friends filed a missing persons report for Finck, a teacher at Brusly High School, and her daughter, who was four years old at the time. Friends, family members, and coworkers hadn’t heard from Finck since July 5.

Also, Finck’s family hadn’t heard from her husband, Lozada, or their daughter, Angelina. The last known communication with Finck was to her mother, who lives in Belgium, on July 5, 2011.
