In St. Mary Parish, deputies are investigating an apparent homicide. A man's body was found this morning, laying in the roadway in the town of Sorrell, near Baldwin.
The St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office says the body was found in the middle of Highway 182 near 318 around 2:20 this morning.
The St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office is not releasing at this time the name of the victim and the nature of the injuries. But for Sorrell residents who live nearby, the incident has left them feeling very uneasy about crime in the area.
"It was shocking. Here is Sorrell? It's too close to home. You know, it's too close, cause we never had nothing like this to happen," Sorrell Lovelle August said.
