A family is grieving in Evangeline Parish after a man is murdered.
The body was found on the side of the road off Highway 13, near the Holiday Tavern on Oberlin Road.
The Evangeline Parish Sheriff's Office is investigating, but is remaining tight lipped. Family members identify the victim as Jonathan Ben, better known as Cujo. We're told he leaves behind five kids.
More than three dozen family and friends lined the road waiting for investigators to give them answers. Police were called in from several agencies for crowd control.
This is the second murder in less than a week near Mamou. Last Saturday, Ezequiel Soto was found gunned down on Reeton School Road off Highway 13.
Police are searching for Javier Gonzalez. Detectives say he shot soto once and left him on the side of the road.
