UPDATE: Baldwin Police have issued a statement about the death of a 15-year-old resident of that town.

In a Facebook post, Baldwin Police say that the Iberia Parish Sheriff's Office will be investigating the child's death. But because he was reported missing from his home, Baldwin Police will be involved.

"Baldwin Police Department will be investigating reasons why the deceased juvenile was missing from his residence in Baldwin," the Facebook post states.

Here's the post:
