RESERVE — A man’s body was located Thursday morning near Airline Highway and Central Avenue in Reserve, St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff Mike Tregre said.

No foul play is suspected, based on video surveillance from the scene.

“It appears he may have overdosed or had a heart attack. We don’t know for certain,” Tregre said.

The man was not carrying any credentials or identifying information. Tregre said investigators aim to have an autopsy done today to gain more information about the deceased.

This is a developing story, and more information will be released as it becomes available.
