ST. MARTINVILLE, La. (KLFY) – The search for Alfred Batiste is over.

St. Martinville Police officers found Mr. Batiste dead in his home Monday night.

According to Public Information Officer Adam Touchet, a welfare check was performed on a family member who was reportedly living with Batiste after investigators deemed the home condemned during the initial stages of their missing person investigation on Sunday.
