LAFAYETTE, La. — KATC's investigative team has won an Emmy.

Last night, at the The 44th Annual Suncoast Regional Emmy® Awards, it was announced that the team of Jim Hummel, Justin Terro, Wynce Nolley and David Hilbun had won the award for Investigative Report – Single Story.

The Emmy was awarded to the "Body of Evidence" story. In that story, Hummel examines permits issued for cremations of homicide victims in Louisiana, despite a state law that prohibits that.
