The identity of the woman whose body was found Monday in a New Iberia street has been released. The Iberia Parish Coroner's Office say 57-year-old Carolyn Pradia died of blunt force injuries.
The Iberia Parish Sheriff's Office received a call just before 4:30 Monday afternoon about a woman lying in the 700 block of Courrege Street. Pradia was taken to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead.
Deputies say Pradia's death may be accidental, but they add that they have not ruled out other causes of death. The coroner's office and the sheriff's office are still investigating the manner of death.
