Body Found in Iberia Parish


In Iberia Parish search and rescue personnel from four different agencies with the help of volunteers located the body of a Central man in Bayou Pigeon Sunday morning.

Rescue personnel from the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, the Iberia, Iberville and Assumption Parish Sheriff's offices, along with countless volunteers found the body of 37-year-old Brent Leblan around 8:30 A.M Sunday.

Rescuers received a call around 4;00 P.M. Saturday afternoon about a vessel floating about a mile from the Bayou Pigeon Landing.

LDWF agents and deputies were searching throughout the night until severe weather made them call off the search.  

They resumed the search Sunday morning at dawn where they eventually found Leblan. At this time investigators do not know how Leblan got ejected from the vessel but they do not suspect alcohol was a factor.
