Missing LSU student: The truck of a missing male senior from LSU has been found this week in Iberville Parish some ways away from Highway 30. Although a body has been confirmed to have been discovered inside the truck, there is no news at this time of the identity of the body, or whether it is the missing LSU student. However, police believe that the body being that of the senior is a very “potential prospect,” WAFB reports this Wednesday, Aug. 28.
The missing LSU student is Chris Broussard, age 22, who has been missing since early Tuesday morning (late Monday night). The truck itself was found with a body inside, while the truck had fallen into a nearby waterway, offered Police Chief Kevin Ambeau in a statement.
The truck was first seen by a Baton Rouge Police helicopter, which was aerially looking for the truck or the evidence of the missing student’s potential location.
According to family members, 22-year-old Chris Broussard is a senior at LSU and was getting ready to leave a late-night party at nearby Bogie’s Bar and Grill sometime after 1 a.m. on Tuesday night. He had texted his mother, saying that he was getting ready to come back to the family’s Ascension Parish home after a fun night out.
Baton Rouge Police have said that the missing LSU teen was last seen by his friends near 1:48 a.m. while he was leaving the bar. A further investigation into the truck and the body found within the vehicle is being conducted, concluded the press release, and further updates on this headline are expected as early as Thursday morning.
