SOUTHWEST LOUISIANA (KPLC) -

Good Morning. John Bridges and Jillian Corder here with a look at what's coming up on 7News Sunrise.

Cameron Parish deputies are trying to determine the identity of a body found by DOTD workers on the side of La. 27, near Hog Island Gully. It's estimated the body had been there for a few weeks.

Several Southwest Louisiana holiday events are scheduled for this weekend, but rainy weather is expected. We have a list of what's canceled and the festivities still on.

A hero to many, Master Sergeant Timothy Hankins died in October while stationed in Flordia. KPLC's Candy Rodriguez shares what the Lake Area community is doing to remember this hero. 

Plus, another phone scam is going around. This time, the caller poses as an Entergy representative. We hear how to avoid the scam from the SWLA BBB.

Whether it's sports injuries or muscle spasms, physical therapy is a standard method of treating patients. But another therapy gaining popularity in the Lake Area.

In weather, after a cool start Friday, temperatures will warm up nicely through the day with highs reaching the mid to upper 60s. Clouds will increase throughout the afternoon and a few isolated showers cannot be ruled out by late afternoon. Rain chances quickly increase Friday night into Saturday morning. Meteorologist Ben Terry will have the latest coming up in your 'First Alert Forecast.' 

Remember, if you are not near a TV this morning, you can watch us live on the desktop or your smartphone.
