DENHAM SPRINGS - Firefighters removed a body from inside of a submerged truck this morning after it appeared that the vehicle had been driven into a pond at North Park.

Authorities identified the man in the car as 36-year-old North Park employee Jayson Beard.

Fellow co-workers say Beard disappeared after checking into work. Later they noticed tire tracks leading to the pond.

Authorities were called where they then pulled the truck out and found Beard inside.

Investigators are looking into the possibly of a seizure as Beard's wife told them he was currently on seizure medication.

The investigation is ongoing and an autopsy is scheduled for Friday.
