A body was found Tuesday afternoon in a ditch at the intersection of Henry and Badger Streets behind Espinosa's restaurant.
Captain Allen Taylor with Gonzales Police Department reported that a passerby discovered the body shortly after 4 p.m. and called 911. The call was originally routed to Gonzales County Sherriff's Department, which transferred the call to GPD.
Police officers and fire department personnel were dispatched to the scene.
Taylor said the person was DOA and had not been identified. Gonzales County Precinct 1 Justice of the Peace Deidra Voight was on the scene serving as coroner.
"The subject was reported lying in a ditch," Taylor said. "We are working on identifying the subject at this time."
