The search is over for missing LSU graduate student Carrie Lynn Yoder. WAFB has confirmed and re-confirmed through four different sources that the body found by a fisherman Thursday near Whiskey Bay is indeed Carrie Lynn Yoder, ending this missing person's case. WAFB knows that the Yoder family is aware of the body being found at Whiskey Bay.  

Someone dumped Carrie Lynn Yoders's body in the marshy waters at Whiskey Bay  just a litttle more than a football field away from where the serial killer dumped Pam Kinamore's body eight months ago. Loved ones say they last heard from Carrie Yoder last Monday night on March 3rd, when police believe she disappeared from her own home. 

On Wednesday at a hope vigil Carrie's family prayed that their daughter's heart was still beating. Official investigators confirm that a fisherman found Carrie's body floating face down in the water, but that the body had few if any clothes on it. Iberville sheriff's deputies got to Whiskey Bay first, followed by Baton Rouge Police Chief Pat Englade and the Serial Killer Task Force.

An important point to note, the East Baton Rouge coroner was also at the scene which tells us this is an official task force investigation.
