New evidence policy for the coroner's office
BATON ROUGE, La (FOX44) - There is a new drug policy at the East Baton Rouge Parish Coroner's Office, after a chief investigator was shot and killed inside TJ Ribs last month.
Coroner, Shannon Cooper, says he's changing they way evidence is tracked, after prescription drugs and drivers licenses were found inside Raymond Levie's home.
The medications and ids were found back in December, when BRPD were investigating a domestic dispute between Levie and his girlfriend, but the coroner's office only found out about it after Levie's death.
So, the office will now keep a central evidence log, rather than each investigator keeping track of it themselves.
