Three men were arrested by the St. Helena Parish Sheriff's Office in connection with the slaying of a Greensburg man, who was found in a ditch Tuesday morning.
Deputies say a passing truck driver spotted the body of Roy Lee Patterson lying in a ditch in the Pine Grove area.
Deputies believe Patterson asked neighbors for a ride to the store, and they allegedly beat him to death on the way back.
Deputies arrested 18-year-old Ledale Dunn, 23-year-old Peter Lee and a 17-year-old.
All three were booked with second-degree murder.
The investigation continues and more arrests are expected.
