Body found in Livingston believed to be missing man from Tangipahoa
ROBERT - Sheriff's deputies in Tangipahoa Parish are questioning people in the death of a 29-year-old man who has been missing since September.
A body was found in Livingston Parish Wednesday, authorities revealed late Thursday. The body has not been identified, but deputies in Tangipahoa Parish believe it is the body of Seth Landry. When he was last seen, Landry, of Ponchatoula, was talking about leaving town for Abita Springs or Florida.
His family said he vanished without a trace and did not make contact with anyone.
Deputies said the body was found on Highway 16. While foul play is not suspected in the cause of death, investigators suspect there may be some criminal mischief surrounding how it got to Livingston Parish.
A spokesperson for the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Office said the investigation continues and more would be released soon.
