GONZALES, La. (AP) - A Gonzales police detective says investigators believe a man whose body was found on the side of a city road Saturday was the victim of a homicide.

Sgt. Steven Nethken, a detective with the Gonzales Police Department, tells The Advocate (https://bit.ly/1QXznIc) police still were trying to determine the man’s identity and were awaiting autopsy results.

Police Chief Sherman Jackson said Monday the man’s body, found the day after Christmas, apparently had been dumped on the south side of Edenborne Parkway just off Louisiana Highway 44 and south of Interstate 10.

Detectives described the body as that of a white man in his mid- to late-50s with salt and pepper hair, a goatee and tattoos on both his left and right biceps.
