Iberville Parish Sheriff's Deputies have identified the man found who was found dead in a ditch in Plaquemine this morning as Robert Crowe, 33, of Plaquemine.

NBC33 was told a truck driver made the find near LA-1 and Industrial Boulevard this morning around 7:00 a.m., just a short distance away from the DOW Chemical Plant.

Detectives say Crowe was found lying face down in that ditch; however, he didn't have any obvious injuries on his body.

"From all indications, we don't see any foul play here,” said Blair Favaron with the Iberville Sheriff’s Office. “We'll just have to wait for the results to come back from the autopsy to see exactly what was the cause of death."

This investigation is ongoing.
