Bodies found in Covington-area trailer may have been there 10 days

The St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office is investigating after the bodies of two people were found inside of a trailer early Tuesday.

COVINGTON, LA. - The St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office is investigating the discovery of two badly-decomposed bodies found in a Covington-area trailer Monday.

Deputies say a welfare check was called in around 1:15 p.m. to the home in the Oak Villa Trailer Park on Ronald Reagan Highway. When they arrived, detectives noticed a foul odor coming from inside the residence. 

Investigators said that the two residents had not had contact with anyone for at least 10 days. 

Once responding agencies got inside, they discovered a deceased female near the door and a second body in another part of the trailer.

Detectives say there were no signs of foul play, but because of the badly-decomposed conditions of the bodies, no positive identification or cause of death will be made until autopsies are conducted.
