(AP) _ New Orleans police are investigating after a body was discovered in a storm drain.
 Police spokesman Juan Barnes said the body was found Sunday evening in the 7th Ward.
It's reported that the storm drain is in a desolate dead-end under Interstate 10, near two stripped and abandoned cars.
 Sewerage & Water Board technicians and firefighters fought termites as they dug out the drain and dropped down a ladder to retrieve the body.
 Barnes said the coroner's office plans an autopsy to determine the cause of death.
