The body of a 54-year-old man was pulled from Bayou Amy in St. Martin Parish Tuesday morning, the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries reported.
Richard Pellerin, of St. Martinville, was discovered around 8 a.m., authorities said. They had been alerted around 12:30 p.m. Monday of a capsized vessel adrift in the bayou.
The cause of the capsize is unknown, and no flotation device was discovered on Pellerin’s body.
An investigation is underway.
