A 20-year-old female is dead, and the Acadia Parish Sheriff's Office is saying her death is suspicious. The woman's body was found at a home on Victor Drive this afternoon, and two schools were put on lockdown as a result.
Initially, deputies said they were responding to a shooting, and the schools were put on lockdown because the deceased had relatives at both schools. The Sheriff's Office says because they weren't sure what happened, they wanted to lockdown the schools as a precaution, and they also wanted to make sure they were able to get to the relatives first to tell them what happened.
Deputies say an autopsy will be done on the woman's body by the Calcasieu coroner. No other details about the cause of death will be released until the autopsy is complete.
Deputies are not searching for a suspect at this time.
