    LA - Sorrento, Male body near wreck on Airline Hwy, May'17 - William Ervin

    SORRENTO - In a bizarre chain of events, emergency crews recovered the body of an unidentified person while working a deadly wreck overnight where three people died in a crash on Airline Highway, WBRZ learned Friday.

    In all, emergency workers recovered the bodies of four people - three from the crash, and the fourth found while crews were dealing with the wreck.

    The fourth body is that of a male, sources said, and appeared to have been in the area for a few days.

    While authorities were investigating the wreck, they discovered a fourth body who was identified as William Ervin, 48, of New Orleans, according to Ascension Parish Sheriff's Chief Deputy Bobby Webre.

    Lt. Col. Ward Webb, also with the Sheriff's Office, said that as officers were searching for the third victim of the car crash Thursday night, they discovered a tent near a line of woods in the area and found the man's body in the tent.

    "There are no obvious signs of foul play," Webb said.

    Chief Deputy Webre said later Friday that deputies learned that Ervin regularly traveled by bike, carrying a tent with him. At the tent deputies located his bicycle as well as medications that indicated Ervin had some previous medical issues, Webre said.

    No foul play is suspected in Ervin's death, Webre said. The cause of death will be known after the coroner's office autopsy, he said.
