Lafayette Sheriff’s Office Deputies were dispatched on Tuesday to investigate a foul smell coming from 505 Marigny Circle Apt. A.
Upon entering the residence they found 50 year old Igancio Juarez deceased in the residence. It appeared Juarez had been dead several days due the decomposition state of his body.
The body’s condition prolonged deputies’ initial investigation into circumstances surrounding the death. Later that day the Coroner’s Office performed an initial examination and discovered evidence that led the investigation to be deemed a homicide.
The investigation is continuing with a complete autopsy to obtain additional information.
