Could This Be The Most Bizarre Missing Person Story Louisiana Has Ever Seen?

A man who was reported missing and then identified as a person found dead walked up as reporters were reporting his death.

Demietriek Scott is a Well Known Chef in the New Orleans Area.

Scott was reported missing on June 10th. According to the person who made the missing persons report "had not had any contact in person or via cell phone with Scott in two weeks". Scott's food trailer had been left unattended for several days and he was a no-show at a major festival where he was scheduled to be.

The Orleans Parish Coroner’s office had given the family a preliminary notification that a dead body found was believed to be Scott. What happened next was crazy, reporters showed up at the family's home to report on the death of this well-known chef and then the "dead person" showed up.
