VICKSBURG, Miss. (AP) - Vicksburg police say the body of a Louisiana educator was found Monday at the Riverwalk Casino and Hotel.

Williams says no other details were being released as the investigation continues.

Leader was named dean in March after serving as interim dean since January. He was an associate dean at the college since 2004 before being named interim dean.

ULM president Dr. James Cofer broke the news to pharmacy school students and faculty on Monday. Classes for the pharmacy school were canceled for the remainder of the day.
