Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Bobby Webre reports that Thursday afternoon deputies began an investigation after a woman’s body was discovered in Bayou Lafourche.
Webre said a truck driver traveling over a small bridge between La. 308 and La. 1, south of Donaldsonville, shortly before 2 p.m. spotted the body in the water and notified the Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies and firemen were able to bring the body to shore, Webre said.
This investigation is still ongoing and more details will be available at a later date. It is too early to determine if foul play is suspected, added Webre.
