Second Body Found Near Lake Arthur

Jeff Davis Sheriff, Ricky Edwards says, three people frogging in a ditch, near Lake Arthur early Saturday morning discovered the body of a partially nude woman.

Edwards says there were obvious physical injuries to the unidentified woman who appeared to have been floating, near a bridge on Louisiana-102, for several days. 

So far, Edwards says, they have no reports of a missing person. He's asking anyone with a female family member, who hasn't been seen in the last few days, to please contact the Sheriff's Office at (337) 821-2100.

Saturday's finding comes just weeks after the discovery of another woman's body in the same area.

Autopsy reports are still pending on 28-year-old Loretta Lyn Chaisson, of Jennings.

She was found floating in a drainage ditch near Louisiana-26 in May.

Edwards says its too early to tell if the two deaths are related.
