St. Tammany authorities seek public's help in ID of body
SLIDELL - St. Tammany Parish detectives are asking the public to help identify a man whose bludgeoned, dismembered and decomposed body was found near a highway intersection two months ago.
Authorities say advanced DNA analysis indicates the man probably had fair skin, brown or hazel eyes and dark brown hair.
Capt. Daniel Seuzeneau (soo-zuh-NOH) said Tuesday that items found near the body indicate that either the man or his killer may have had ties to the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
In addition, the man was about 5-foot-10, had a scar from open heart bypass surgery, and was killed by blunt trauma to his head. The sheriff's office says he probably was at least in his mid-60s.
The body was dumped on Highway 90 near Highway 433 late July 28 or early July 29.
