ROSEDALE - The body of a man who is believed to be a victim of a violent incident in West Baton Rouge Parish over a week ago was found on Saturday in an Iberville Parish sugar cane field by a group of people riding all-terrain vehicles.

The Iberville Parish Sheriff's Office later identified the man as Avery Hastings, 42, of Corpus Christi.

Hasting's body was found in a cane field off Sidney Road near Rosedale.

The West Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office is conducting an ongoing probe into the death along with leads from the Iberville Parish Sheriff's Office.
