LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - Lafayette police are investigating the death of a 21-year-old woman whose body was found early Sunday in a drainage ditch in Girard Park.

Cpl. Paul Mouton says the death is suspicious, but detectives have not ruled out foul play in the death of the Alexandria Shelton.

Mouton says Shelton had planned to meet some friends, but she never showed.

He says her friends called her cellphone after not hearing from her and a man answered, saying he found the phone in the park. The friends drove to the park, took the phone from two men and called police.

Mouton say police have interviewed the men and they were able to provide investigators with specific information regarding where they found the victim’s cellphone.
