Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office authorities report the death of 48-year-old Albert M. Carroll Jr. of 36365 Desoto Street, Prairieville. On Wednesday, Oct. 17, Albert's body was found by a family member who went looking for him because he had not been heard from in the last few days. The body was found in the garage not far from a small generator used to power the home.

Investigators inspecting the scene noticed the generator in the run mode but out of fuel. The family member reported that the electricity to the home was disconnected recently and the generator may have been used as a power source for the residence.

There were no signs of foul play. The investigation is still ongoing, cause of death pending autopsy.
