The Louisiana Attorney General's Office has launched its own investigation into the death of a 59-year-old Addis woman who died suspiciously a year ago from multiple traumatic injuries.
The Advocate reports the state was asked to look over the case files surrounding Sandra Rinaudo's death at the request of Addis Police Chief Ricky Anderson.
Rinaudo's daughter, Ragean Bellelo, has publicly criticized the Addis Police Department for closing her mother's case even though an autopsy report had ruled it a homicide. No arrests had been made since her mother was found dead in her home on Aug. 9.
The autopsy report found Rinaudo suffered multiple blunt-force injuries that fractured some of her ribs, split her pancreas in half and broke her nose.
