Man’s body found in Louisiana bayou

SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) — A north Louisiana sheriff’s office is investigating the discovery of a body in Jeems Bayou.

Caddo Parish Sheriff Steve Prator says deputies were notified that a kayaker found a body of a man in the bayou just before 8 a.m. Saturday about a half-mile (0.8 kilometers) south of the bridge on Highway 2.

Sgt. Pam Purgerson says there was also evidence that a vehicle had left the roadway and struck the bridge and several trees.

Authorities recovered a pickup truck that had been submerged.

The victim’s identity has not been released.
