Deputies are investigating a severed human head found by a road crew this afternoon on La. 27
Cameron Parish Sheriff Ron Johnson told New 10 that the head was discovered in a bag at about 1:25 p.m.
The remains were too decayed to determine gender, Johnson said.
“It definitely had not been there for years, maybe a few months,” Johnson said. “The Calcasieu Parish Coroner’s Office is going to help us with the investigation.”
The remains were found near mile marker 59.7, not far from the Sabine National Wildlife Refuge. Deputies investigated the surrounding marsh and canal, but found no other traces of evidence, Johnson said.
The coastal roadway is heavily used by fishermen and visitors headed to recreational areas and by construction crews working on major projects in the parish such as Cheniere Energy’s Sabine Pass LNG Terminal.
“We found nothing else at the scene,” the sheriff told News 10 tonight.
