Bullet-Riddled Body Slows I-10 Traffic

Police are investigating an early morning murder that stalled traffic on Interstate 10 in New Orleans East.

A man's bullet-riddled body was found Friday just before 6 a.m. on the corner of Cove and the I-10 Service Road about 50 feet from the roadway.

The body was exposed, causing drivers to slow down and look. Police said covering the body would have contaminated crucial evidence.

Police have no suspects or motive in the case. Anyone with information is asked to call Crimstoppers at (504) 822-1111.
