The Sabine Parish Sheriff’s Office states that it has discovered new evidence and positive identification in the “man in the well” case. In 1984, police reported that Grand Isle’s 58-year-old Lester Roma had disappeared to Jefferson parish authorities. The landowner of the Parish of Sabine reportedly found that a human skeleton remained in a well on his property. Skeleton debris was recovered, but at that time no clear identification was possible.
