Rapides Parish, LA - November 28th, 2018

 

On Friday, November 23rd, 2018, at approximately 9:45 am, Patrol Deputies responded to a residence on Leon Odom Road in the Plainview Community in reference to what was reported as a natural death.  According to the complainant, the victim, who was a special needs patient, was found deceased that morning.  Upon arrival, the deputy began his investigation and due to the deceased being a special needs patient and the deplorable living conditions the deceased was found in, determined the incident needed further investigation.  A Patrol Supervisor also responded as well as Sheriff’s Detectives and Crime Scene Unit to continue the investigation.  

 

From the deplorable living conditions the deceased was found in and the physical state of the body, detectives believed the death was a result of severe intentional neglect. From their investigation since Friday, detectives were able to establish sufficient probable cause and secured arrest warrants for three suspects; Marilyn Sue Maricle, 52, Glen E. Maricle, 55 and Karen Harrison Johnson, 47, all residing at 246 Leon Odom Road, Elizabeth, LA.  Detectives obtained warrants based on the evidence at the scene and results of an autopsy conducted on Tuesday for two counts Obstruction of Justice, Criminal Conspiracy, Cruelty to the Infirmed and 2nd Degree Murder.  On November 27th , 2018, Sheriff’s Detectives, with the assistance of United States Marshals Service Violent Offender Task Force, located all three suspects at their residence and they were taken into custody without incident.  All three suspects were transported and booked into the Rapides Parish Detention Center where they remain at the time of this release being held on a $1,170,000.00 (1 million $170 thousand dollar) bond.  

Detectives say their investigation is still ongoing.

“Our detectives briefed me on what they had found and in all their years of law enforcement experience, they had never witnessed a scene of neglect as bad as this one” said Sheriff William Earl Hilton.  “This is so sad on so many levels.  I want to commend our deputies and detectives for the diligence they have put into this very difficult investigation.  As one of our supervisors said, we are the voice of those victims who can no longer speak for themselves.”

Rapides Parish, LA - November 9th, 2018 

On September 13th, 2018, deputies responded Earl Linzay Road, Forest Hill, LA, in reference to a report of possible contractor fraud. Upon arrival, contact was made with the victim who stated they had hired a contractor to fix their roof approximately two months ago (JULY) and he has not started the job or been in contact with them since.  The victim identified the contractor as Charles Nathan Beaudion and also stated that Beaudion had been paid over $8,000 by check for the work to be performed.  According to the victim, after Beaudion received the check and cashed it, a contract was signed as he promised to return to finish the job (According to LA Revised Statute 14:202.1, a contractor has 45 days to perform the work specified in the contract).  According to the victim, Beaudoin has never started the job and would not answer any calls from the victim.  Sheriff’s Detectives began their investigation and had uncovered several complaints through the Better Business Bureau as well as other law enforcement agencies about Beaudions work and prior arrests for similar incidents.  After a thorough investigation, Sheriff’s Detectives obtained an arrest warrant on Beaudoin for residential contractor fraud $5000-$25,000. 

Upon obtaining the arrest warrant, Detectives with the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office contacted Rapides Detectives and advised of similar complaints on Beaudion in their parish.  NPSO advised they would assist in locating and apprehending the suspect. 

On October 8th, 2018, Natchitoches Sheriff’s Detectives contacted Rapides Detectives and advised that Beaudion was in their custody and is currently being held on a $100,000 bond in the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center.  A hold has been placed on Beaudion for Rapides Detectives in the event he bonds out from Natchitoches.  

“This was a great effort by our detectives as well as Natchitoches Sheriff’s Office in apprehending this suspect” said Sheriff William Earl Hilton.  “I would also like to thank the Louisiana State Police Insurance Fraud Investigators for their assistance in this case.  Whenever homeowners need repairs, they should do as much research on the potential contractor as they can.  In this case, the suspect even presented the victim with a contract which would seem like he was legitimate, but he wasn’t.  Especially now since we have had these storms come through, make sure your contractor is bonded  and licensed and check ratings with the Better Business Bureau and other agencies to see if they are legitimate.  Do everything you can to prevent becoming a victim twice.”

Rapides Parish, LA - October 31, 2018

On October 22nd, 2018, deputies from the Sheriff’s Office Metro Division conducted a traffic stop for improper lane usage on US-165 near Burma Road in Ball, LA.  Deputies contacted the driver, identified as Jerry Lynn Esters and the passenger, identified as Rhoda Nicole Green.  Deputies spoke with the occupants and obtained consent to search the vehicle and during the search, 70 assorted Fentanyl transdermal patches were located in Green’s purse and several Percocet tablets in a container in Esters’ pocket.  The pair admitted to agents that they had traveled from LaSalle Parish to Pineville to sell the patches. Fentanyl patches can be sold for up to $100 each depending on dosage.  Green and Esters were taken into custody without incident and transported to the Rapides Parish Detention Center where they were booked on their charges and later released on $26,500 bond each.

Fentany transdermal patches are used in chronic pain management as they work slowly releasing fentanyl through the skin into the bloodstream over 48 to 72 hours, allowing for long-lasting pain management.  Those that abuse Fentanyl patches will either use several of them, chew them to get the desired effect or even extract the fentanyl and inject it, ingest it or smoke it.  Fentanyl has been found as the cause of several overdose deaths in central Louisiana.
