Terrebonne deputies: probe of April death stalled
GIBSON, La.- Terrebonne Parish Sheriff's Office deputies say an investigation into the death of a 24-year-old man found face down in a Gibson waterway more than a month ago has stalled.
Jamon Lutcher was found by a fisherman in late April in a canal off U.S. Highway 90. Officials continue to call it a "suspicious death" because of where his body was found, although no suspects have been identified, according to sheriff's Capt. Dawn Foret.
A cause of death has not been determined. The Courier of Houma reports that investigators are waiting for autopsy results from the Jefferson Coroner's Office, which can take up to six weeks.
