Sheriff Investigates Drowning
Friday, October 6, 2006
On Thursday October 5, 2006 at approximately 11:00pm the Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office responded to a possible drowning at a residence in the 1400 Block of La. Hwy 93 in Scott. Upon deputies arrival at the residence they discovered the body of 20 year-old Nichole Campbell of Kaplan at the bottom of the pool. Information gathered at the scene indicated that Campbell was at the house attending a party on Wednesday October 4, 2006. She was believed to have left the residence sometime in the early morning hours. A search began after her family reported her missing on Thursday. Due to the murky conditions of the pool, Campbell's body was not detected earlier.
