DENHAM SPRINGS - Police in Denham Springs told News 2 they're investigating the death of a former assistant attorney general and city prosecutor from Baton Rouge.

Detectives and the parish coroner confirmed Wilbert Jordan Jr. was found dead in the Magnuson Hotel on Rushing Road in Denham Springs early this morning. They would not describe the circumstances of his death.

Investigators did say they were looking to question a woman Jordan was seen with as a person of interest in the case.

Jordan, an environmental attorney from Baton Rouge, served as Assistant Secretary of the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality and was involved in statewide preparations and environmental damage assessment during hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

News 2's Adrian Pittman will have live updates on this mystery starting at 4 p.m.
