From District Attorney Scott Perrilloux
Livingston- District Attorney Scott M. Perrilloux reports that 42-year-old Chad Glasscock pleaded no contest to manslaughter and obstruction of justice.
On December 20, 2017, Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office Detectives received a report of a missing person named Brent Pollard who was last seen on Satsuma Road in Livingston, Louisiana.
Subsequently, Pollard’s body was discovered in a wooded area near Red Oak Road in Livingston Parish. Pollard was partially buried under pine straw and leaves with his wrists and ankles bound by duct tape. An autopsy revealed that Pollard had died from strangulation.
Livingston Parish Detectives began an investigation and determined that Chad Glascock, also from Livingston, Louisiana, had an argument with the victim which led to a physical encounter between the two men. During the fight, Glascock knocked the victim to the ground and strangled him, resulting in his death. Glascock then dumped Pollard’s deceased body approximately 50 yards near a hunting camp road to obstruct authorities from being able to locate the victim.
On August 3, 2020, a negotiated plea and sentence were agreed upon by the defendant and the state along with the victim’s family’s consent.
Judge Charlotte Foster sentenced Chad Glascock to 20 years at hard labor on one count of manslaughter and 10 years at hard labor for Obstruction of Justice. Those sentences were ordered to run consecutively for a total of 30 years with the department of corrections.
Assistant District Attorney Kurt Wall represented the State of Louisiana.
