15-year-old Quawan “Bobby” Charles of Louisiana went missing Oct. 30 and his disfigured body was found in a sugarcane field in Iberia Parish four days later. Now, his family and local leaders are demanding answers.
Charles was staying at his fathers house in Baldwin, Louisiana. The family’s attorney, Ken Haley, told the Daily Caller that Charles’ mother, Roxanne Nelson, had tried calling him on Oct. 30 but didn’t receive an answer. Nelson then called Charles’ father, who said Charles was probably sleeping.
Quawan Charles was a high school sophomore. Although this tragedy is spreading across social media posts as the story of “Bobby” Charles, only his mother and close family members called him by that nickname before he disappeared.https://t.co/bPMKr0dEVg

Charles’ family then contacted the Baldwin Police Department to report that Charles was missing. Iberia Parish Sheriff’s Department, which covers Baldwin, dispatched officers to comb the area where Charles was last seen, checking out the local football game and other areas, according to Baldwin
