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.

The initial coroner's report indicates no signs of foul play, although a full report including toxicology tests is pending.
