A man who was slumped over the steering wheel of a car on Margartet Street was found dead this morning.

Iberia Parish Sheriff's Office Spokesman Wendell Raborn says that officers had to break the windows of the Ford Expedition that was parked on the side of the road in order to get to the man.

Deputies say this man was reported missing from Franklin last week. (December 5)

The body has been turned over to the Iberia Parish Coroner's Office so that they can determine the casue of this man's death.

His identity is being withheld right now, as deputies are working to notify the man's family.

Deputies found the man at around 8:30 this morning on Margaret Street between Mixon and Mississippi Streets.
