The coroner has identified the body of a man discovered outside a New Iberia home on Anderson St. early Monday.
An official within the coroner's office said that no cause of death had been released yet for 35-year-old Marvin Colbert, Jr., who was discovered just after midnight yesterday morning. Officials had waited to release the name until next of kin had been notified.
Further autopsy results are expected later in the week, possibly as early as Thursday, according to officials within the coroner's office. An Iberia Parish Sheriff's Office spokesperson said that the department would treat the death as suspicious until they are told otherwise.
"Our investigation continues and we are awaiting off cause of death from the coroner's office," said Lt. Richard Fleming, IPSO spokesperson.
