The body of a teenager was found in a regulating pond near Boshen High School after being thrown from a horse and drowned, according to reports from Sheriffs of the Parish of St. Laundry and KATC.

Sheriff Bobby Gidros said 17-year-old Jacoly Levier was killed on Tuesday night when the horse he was riding became creepy and threw him into a pond. Levier never appeared again.

Authorities began searching the pond after receiving a call reporting drowning around 9 pm on Tuesday, according to sheriffs. The pond itself ranges from 3 to 20 feet and covers about 0.5 acres.

Levier was found in the pond shortly after the search began, KATC reported.

The teenager was with a group of friends at the time of drowning. According to Gidros, they are being questioned by lawmakers to eliminate fraudulent play.

After the incident, the horse on which Levier was riding took off and was later seen running across Highway 93.
