Missing LSU student: A yet-unidentified body and a truck have been found near a bar after a party Monday night, which was the last site that 22-year-old senior Chris Broussard was seen this week. Although the truck has been confirmed to have belonged to Broussard, who first went missing Tuesday morning, and the body is believed to be that of the Louisiana State University student, the body is awaiting family identification, Christian Post reports this Thursday, Aug. 29.
The missing LSU student was seen last around 2:00 a.m. while leaving a bar party with his friends. When he didn’t come home that morning, his mother contacted the police and filed a missing person report. Broussard last texted his mother at around 1:00 a.m., saying that he was going to be coming home soon, but never did.
The missing LSU student was a senior getting ready to graduate this year. His truck, a Nissan pickup, was found not far from Bogie’s Bar and Grill. More red alerts went up when Broussard didn’t return home or show up to work the following day after the late-night party.
Although his family has said they have been looking for the 22-year-old son for the last 24 hours and posted numerous flyers around the LSU campus, they fear that Chris’ body is the one found inside the truck off Highway 30 in Iberville Parish. A search helicopter had first found the truck, which had crashed into a nearby waterway.
Although the missing LSU student is believed to have been found, police are still conducting their investigation of Chris Broussard, and are now looking into confirming the body’s identity as possibly that of Chris, as well as the circumstances surrounding the death of the body.
More news surrounding the sad story of this senior is expected soon, concluded the report.
