Sheriff: Bones found in Iberville Parish are human remains

IBERVILLE PARISH, LA (WAFB) - Iberville Parish Sheriff Brett Stassi said the LSU FACES lab confirms the bones found Monday on LA 77 are human remains.

Stassi said the lab stated early indications are the bones are of a man between the age of 35 and 55.

He said the lab is in the process of extracting DNA to get an identity.

Stassi added there are a few people who have been missing from Iberville Parish, but the body does not necessarily have to be of someone who is from Iberville Parish.

It could be from any other parish or even state for that matter.
