Woman found dead over weekend allegedly connected to FBI investigation of cases handled by former D.A.
By Kyle Barnett - Feb 14, 2013
The St. Charles Parish Sheriff's Office is asking the public for information surrounding the circumstances of the death of a Destrehan woman who may be connected to the F.B.I. investigation into cases handled by former St. Charles Parish District Attorney Harry Morel.
The Herald-Guide reported earlier this week 27-year-old Danelle Keim was found dead in her home on Stanton Hall Drive in Destrehan early Saturday morning.
Keim's death came less than a day after a NOLA.com/Times-Picayune report revealed the F.B.I. investigation into former cases handled by Morel were connected to allegations of his granting leniency to those charged with crimes in exchange for sexual favors.
District Attorney Joel Chaisson said his office had not been contacted by the Sheriff's Office concerning an investigation into Keim's death.
