A woman’s body was found in Whiskey Bay on Saturday, and the Iberville Parish Sheriff’s Office is investigating the case as a homicide.

A fisherman found the body, which appears to be that of a woman between 25 and 35 years old, and notified the Sheriff’s Office on Saturday morning, Sheriff Brett Stassi said.

The woman has not yet been identified, and an autopsy will be conducted soon, Stassi said.

He said he wasn’t sure how long the body had been in Whiskey Bay, but based on its condition, it probably had not been there longer than 72 hours.

“We’re lucky that it hadn’t been any extended period of time in the water,” Stassi said.
