As joggers passed nearby, Baton Rouge police detectives Saturday evening were investigating human remains found near LSU, along the banks of the Mississippi River.

The remains were found near River Road and Skip Bertman Drive, near the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine, said Cpl. Don Coppola, a Baton Rouge police spokesman.

Coppola confirmed Sunday that investigators do not suspect foul play and believe it may have been a suicide.

It was unclear exactly how long the remains had been there. The incident remains under investigation.
