LAPLACE – A man found dead inside a Metairie motel room Friday was identified as a LaPlace resident, according to the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office.

A housekeeper discovered the body of King Honore, 41, lying on a bed in room 124 of the LaQuinta Inn, 3100 South Interstate 10 Service Road, just before 3 p.m. Friday. Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Col. John Fortunato said Honore was staying at the hotel because his home in LaPlace was damaged by Hurricane Isaac.
