Good morning!

Agnes DeRouen in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we're working on for 7News@Noon.

Authorities are asking for the public's help in determining what led to the death of a Calcasieu Parish man whose body was found in a southeast Texas river. The man was found on May 16 in the Neches River.

Also today, with technology on the rise, one funeral home director is changing the way visitations are held. He's adding drive-thru services!

Plus, mosquitoes seem to take over this time of year, but did you know certain plants in your yard could help you ward off the pests? We'll tell you which plants are best for the job.

In weather, Ben tells me our quiet weather pattern continues with the heat becoming a real concern. He says the high in Lake Charles will reach 94 degrees with the heat index making it feel more like 100 by lunch time. Is there any relief in sight? Tune in for Ben's live, local forecast at noon for the answers.

Remember, you can always watch us online at and on air. We hope you join us, and have a great day!
