Mark Miles with the Baton Rouge Fire Department said the body was found at 5181 Madison Avenue. Miles said firefighters were called to the property around 1:30 a.m. and found the shed behind the house was on fire.

After responders put the fire out Miles said they were released from the scene, but during a further investigation they noticed the body.

The coroner would have to perform an autopsy to determine cause of death.
