Vermilion Parish Sheriff's deputies are investigating a body found in a car, in a field, shot in the head. Authorities say they have few clues but are ruling it a suspicious death.
They found the car just after 6:30 Saturday morning just off of Perkins Road. In it they found a black man in the driver's seat with a gunshot wound to the head.
Detectives say evidence at the scene suggests foul play was involved, but are releasing few details besides that. The identity of the victim is being withheld at this time pending notification of next of kin.
