Crews looking for missing LSU student find bullet riddled van in Mississippi River
Crews searching along the Mississippi River for missing Louisiana State University student Kori Gauthier found something else instead this week: a passenger van riddled with bullet holes. Officials said they didn’t believe it was connected with Gauthier’s disappearance. Her wrecked car was found early Wednesday near an I-10 bridge over the river in Baton Rouge. The person involved in the crash said the car was empty when he struck it, although police found her cell phone and wallet inside. The United Cajun Navy, whose crews found the van in the river, said they took some photos and passed them along to Baton Rouge police.
