A deadly boating accident over the weekend in Iberia Parish is now being investigated by the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries.
As KLFY News 10 reported earlier, the body of Leonard Norbert Jr., 58, of New Iberia, was recovered from Mud Lake late Saturday night. Authorities were alerted by two fishermen that found an unmanned aluminum boat and a fishing pole nearby in the water. It is not known how Norbert entered the water. His body was found near the unmanned boat without a personal flotation device.
An official cause of death will be determined by the Iberia Parish Coroner’s Office.
