The dead body of a woman was discovered Wednesday afternoon at an address just south of DeRidder, off of Granberry Road.

At approximately 12:35 p.m., the Beauregard Parish Sheriff's Office received a call that the body of a female had been found, and investigators with the Jennings Task Force and FBI are currently en route to the scene to assist and compare notes.
"It is not known yet if this body is connected to the Jennings killings," Beauregard Parish Chief Deputy Joe Toler said. "They are just going to come and take a look at the scene."
The body was found by a passers-by in a vehicle. The age, race and gender of the woman have not been released.
