Opelousas Police are currently investigating after a body was found inside a home.

Police say the body of 26-year-old Corey "CJ" Rosette Jr was found at a home in the 100 block of Nicole Lane. Foul play is suspected, police say.

After not hearing from Rosette since Friday, February 11, Rosette's family asked for a wellness check at his home. There, police found the body of the 26-year-old.

Police say they believe Rosette was shot but an autopsy will determine the cause of death. That is expected by Tuesday, they tell us.

As of Monday evening, no arrests were made but police say they are conducting interviews.

KATC's Taylor Toole was in Opelousas and will have more from law enforcement.
