He was pronounced dead by the Iberia Parish Coronero's Office.

Raborn says that the victim was in dark clothing at the time this tragedy happened. They add that there were no street lights on Captain Cade Road.

Routine toxicology testing are pending in this case, and the name of the 34-year-old man is being held while Iberia Sheriff's officials notify the man's next of kin.
