Although police have not released the official identification of the missing student's body, family of the teen have confirmed it was Broussar that was found dead inside his truck, according to UPI.com on Aug. 29
The mother of the missing LSU student reports that he texted her on Tuesday night from Bogies Bar in Baton Rouge, which is near the LSU campus. He said he'd either return home or stay at a friends. It wasn't until his mother learned he didn't make it to work at a fitness club on Wednesday morning, that she reported him missing to police. Missing work was unlike her son, who really loved his job at the fitness club.
Police did say that the missing LSU student's gray Nissan pick-up truck had been found and they also said there was a dead body inside, but stopped short at saying the dead body was that of Broussar. The teen's family released the news that Christopher Broussar is dead on Twitter. A Facebook page that was created after it was discovered the student was missing. In a post to the "FIND CHRIS" Facebook page on Wednesday night, Broussard's cousin wrote:
I wanted to say thank you to all of you on this page. My cousin has been found, but the worst we thought is true. Just keep my aunt, uncle, cousin, the rest of our family, and his fraternity in y'all's prayers.
Broussard's fraternity at LSU previously issued a statement urging anyone with information to come forward:
