ZACHARY, LA (WAFB) - The prime suspect in an unsolved murder is running for police chief of Zachary.
David Brown, a former corrections officer, insists he is not a suspect in the Sept. 2009 murder of his fiancée, Tamara Dupuy.
Brown has not been charged in the case and hopes to soon lead the force in Zachary.
Almost one year after the gruesome scene in Zachary, there is still no word on exactly what happened to Dupuy. She was found handcuffed and shot in the head inside a laundromat.
"Tamara was a very vital part of us and we cared about her a lot," Brown said. "I just want to make sure the right person is in prison for what they did."
Brown insists he is innocent, arguing the police department has the wrong guy.
"That's only a dirty political move and shame on them for even bringing this up right about now," he said.
Capt. David McDavid said the police department is building a case against Brown every day.
"He's running for the wrong reasons," said McDavid. "To me, it's a slap in the face. We all have dreams of becoming a police chief and for this person to run in here and he has no business involved in this."
Brown is not charged in connection with Dupuy's murder and being a suspect does not disqualify him from running for the position.
McDavid said police are also investigating another "person of interest" in the Dupuy murder case.
Brown said he is not running for police chief because of the investigation. He argues he and Tamara talked about it many times before she died.
Brown is running against current chief, John Herty. The election is Oct. 2.
