UPDATE: Police have identified the female body found in Lake Arthur as 27-year-old Lacie Fontenot.

ORIGINAL: Police in Jefferson Davis Parish don’t know if foul play was involved in the death of a woman whose body was found in Lake Arthur Friday.

KATC reported the body was found near a water tower at West Sixth Street and Commercial Avenue.

Police said they responded to the area Friday afternoon and were at the scene for “several hours,” KATC reported.

“We don’t even know if there’s foul play involved in it. We have to wait for the coroner’s report from the crime lab to determine if there is any foul play. It’s an ongoing investigation we can’t tell you much more than that”, Sheriff Ivy Woods told the television station.

Both Woods and Lake Arthur Chief of Police Cheryl Vincent said the discovery of the body could not yet be tied to the “Jennings 8″ murders.

The case remains under investigation.
