COVINGTON, La. — St. Tammany Parish deputies are investigating a death they termed “suspicious” after finding a woman in need of medical attention in her house Monday morning.
Deputies said they received a call at 11:15 a.m. from a man saying a woman in his neighbor’s house needed help. He told officials he called on behalf of someone already at the house.
Once inside, deputies found the woman, suffering from signs of an apparent struggle. She was taken to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
The Sheriff’s Office said they suspect “foul play” and are in the process of finding information.
The woman’s identity and cause of death will be determined by the coroner’s office.
