DONALDSONVILLE - Sheriff's deputies said Monday that an autopsy confirmed a body found near the Donaldsonville levee is a missing Ascension Parish teen.

Deputies found the body of Brandon Augusta, 15, on Aug. 14 about 50 feet off the road near the levee. Investigators said at the time that the body was too badly beaten for a quick identification, and that they would have to rely on dental records.

Augusta was last seen on Aug. 10, when he was last seen getting into a vehicle with someone else.

Anyone with information about Augusta's death should call the Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office at 225-621-INFO (4636) or text 847411 to their anonymous tip line.
