2 found dead during welfare check; drug overdose suspected

PRAIRIEVILLE, LA (WAFB) - An investigation is underway after two people were found dead inside a home Monday, according to investigators.

The Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office reports Rickey Foster, 50, and Connie Bolen, 56, both of Prairieville, were found dead in a home Monday. On Wednesday, officials reported the autopsies showed no sign of trauma.

Chief Deputy Bobby Webre with APSO say deputies responded to Autumn View Apartments on Autumn View Drive in Prairieville just before 3 p.m. to conduct a welfare check on two people. He added the deputies found Foster and Bolen dead.

“There was no forced entry into the residence,” said Webre.

APSO says due to available evidence, the autopsy results, and statements from next of kin, they believe the two died from a drug overdose, however, officials will not be able to confirm this until toxicology results are available.
