An unidentified, white male, deceased, found inside the truck. Police couldn't confirm the body was missing LSU student Chris Broussard— The Daily Reveille (@lsureveille) August 29, 2013
His family filed a missing person's report when he didn't show up for work at a fitness center.
“He didn’t have school on Tuesday and he never made it home,” she said. “He never showed up at work, and he’s never missed work because he really likes the place. He’s always prompt.”
In a post to the "FIND CHRIS" Facebook page on Wednesday night, Broussard's cousin wrote:
I wanted to say thank you to all of you on this page. My cousin has been found, but the worst we thought is true. Just keep my aunt, uncle, cousin, the rest of our family, and his fraternity in y'all's prayers.
Broussard's fraternity previously issued a statement urging anyone with information to come forward:
Theta Chi Fraternity has learned of the missing person report filed for Christopher Broussard, a member of Theta Chi's Chapter at Louisiana State University. The LSU Chapter leadership has been in contact with the fraternity's International Headquarters Staff and LSU administrators. The Fraternity urges anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Christopher to immediately contact the appropriate authorities.
Theta Chi offers its full support of the efforts of investigators and prays for Christopher's safe and immediately return.
