Police identify body found in Lake Arthur - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

Police identify body found in Lake Arthur

Good Afternoon,

Lee Peck in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we are working on for 7 News at Six.

We now know the identity of the woman found dead in Lake Arthur. Police identify her as 27-year-old Lacie Fontenot. KPLC's Erica Bivens revisits the scene and talks with neighbors.

It was a rude awakening this morning for some Lake Charles residents as a series of emergency sirens were triggered. It was the second time within a week for a false alarm, but as KPLC Monica Grimaldo reports officials believe they could be closer to finding the problem.

And the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office makes three more arrests in a string of attempted purse snatchings at a local business.

We'll also take you to the Sulphur Regional Library where a captive audience explored a traveling planetarium.

Also, being a mom is not easy, but a Westlake group of women we'll tell you it's the most rewarding job. We'll tell you about the Moms Next Ministry and how they're making motherhood a little easier by sharing their stories and experiences.

And it was a crazy week in the weather department. Meteorologist Zack Fradella is in tonight and will have your forecast.

We'll see you tonight at Six for these stories and more. Until then, we're always on at kplctv.com.
