There's no confirmation yet, but authorities in St. Tammany Parish believe a badly decomposed body found in an area near the I-10/I-12/I-59 split Tuesday morning is that of a missing man.

Deputies responded to the location after a highway crew clearing debris discovered the remains.

Slidell police believe the body is that of Tony "Tiger" Bennett of Pearl River who was last seen at a Motel 6 in Slidell in December 2017.

The coroner's office is working to positively identify the body.
