NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The Orleans Parish Coroner’s Office confirms that a body pulled from the Industrial Canal over the weekend is that of a missing Reserve man, 34-year-old Kenneth Joseph.

The coroner says Joseph drowned.

Joseph, and his wife, 29-year-old Lakeitha, were reported missing Feb. 19 after the couple’s house was found ransacked.

WVUE-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1doTjkU ) the wife’s body was found March 17 in the Intracoastal Waterway.

Investigators have not ruled out foul play in either death. The couple’s 2010 Dodge Caravan was found in a suburban Atlanta parking lot Feb. 28, and the St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff’s Office sent detectives there to look for evidence.

Anyone with information to help solve the case could be eligible for a $2,500 reward and is asked to call Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111.
