The Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office has responded to the body of an Elf on a Shelf discovered on N. Causeway Blvd. and W. Napoleon Ave in Metairie, WGNO reports.

The body was found last week. The victim is described as 11 inches tall, weighing about 2 pounds. He had dark brown hair, deputies say.

JPSO exclusively told WGNO, “We have been in contact with authorities at the North Pole (not the big guy) to get their assistance in identifying the elf, but have been unsuccessful so far. His death remains unclassified as there was no autopsy — when the medical examiners went to perform it, they found the body missing, with only a candy cane in its place.”
