NOPD Makes Arrest in 2022 Homicide in Seventh District

The NOPD’s Violent Offender Warrant Squad and the U.S. Marshals today (March 29, 2023) arrested Nicholas "Ducktape" Stackpoole (white male, DOB: 11-26-1981) in the investigation of a homicide that occurred on August 24, 2022, in the 11,000 block of Chef Menteur Highway.

At about 6:45 p.m., NOPD Seventh District officers responded to a call of illegal discharging of a firearm.  Upon arrival, they found an unknown black female laying in a wooded area suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Orleans Parish Coroner’s Office identified the deceased victim as Toiannie Odom (black female, DOB: 11-1-1989) and determined the cause of death to be from gunshot wound injuries.

Through investigation, NOPD Homicide Unit detectives developed and positively identified Stackpoole as the perpetrator in this incident. An arrest warrant was then obtained on March 29, 2023, for Stackpoole on one count of second-degree murder. 

Today, Stackpoole was located at a residence on Deslonde Street in the Fifth District and was arrested by VOWS officers & U.S. Marshals and subsequently booked into the Orleans Parish Justice Center.

All persons are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
