LAKE ARTHUR, La. (AP) - The body of a woman was found face down in a shallow ditch Friday on the west side of Lake Arthur.
    
Police Chief Cheryl Vincent says for right now, the case is being treated as a suspicious death. Vincent says they will have to wait for the coroner's report to determine if foul play was involved or not.
    
Vincent says authorities have no idea how long the body may have been there. She says there were no reports of any missing people.
    
Vincent has identified the woman as 27-year-old Lacie Fontenot of Lake Arthur. Investigators are still waiting on an autopsy report to determine how Fontenot died.
