PLAQUEMINE, LA (WAFB) -

Authorities are investigating a possible double homicide after two bodies were found in a car near a sugarcane field Monday morning.

The Iberville Parish Sheriff's Office said both victims were men and had been shot.

Deputies say Ronald Anthony Harrell, 38, of Baton Rouge and Junius Dedrick III, 46, of Ventress were the two men found in the car.

According to IPSO, a motorcycle patrolman spotted a car in a ditch on LA 1 near St. Louis Road in Plaquemine around 6:30 a.m.

When he walked up to investigate he spotted two people dead inside.

A crime scene unit from the Louisiana State Police is assisting with the investigation and gathering evidence.

The sheriff's office is treating this as a homicide until officials can determine otherwise.

Sheriff Brett Stassi said debris on the road indicates the car was driving very erratically before crashing in the ditch.

The investigation is ongoing and more details will be released as they become available. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Iberville Parish Sheriff's Office, Criminal Investigation Division at 225-687-5100.
