The coroner in Acadia Parish has identified the man's body found along Hawks Road in Acadia Parish last week as Renny Mendoza. An age and hometown were not available, but he was identified through fingerprints. The coroner says Mendoza had multiple stab wounds, including to the back of the abdomen, chest, neck, face, and head. There was also one large cut across the throat. This case has been ruled a homicide. The Acadia Parish Sheriff's Office has no new updates.
Mendoza's body was found by a boy riding a four-wheeler. The coroner said it appeared the body had been there for less than a week.
