Sheriff's deputies in Louisiana suspect foul play in the death of a 16-year-old girl from Kenner, a suburb just west of New Orleans.

St. Charles Parish Maj. Rodney Madere says the body of Jorion White was found Sunday in a drainage ditch in St. Rose, about 7 miles from Kenner.

Madere says a passenger in a passing car spotted the body.

Kenner police say White was last seen Thursday night and her family reported her missing Friday evening.

Coroner Dr. Brian Brogle says his office has not determined the cause of death, and routine toxicology test results are pending.
