BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A man is being charged with second-degree murder in connection to a body that was found off Greenwell Springs Road Friday afternoon, according to the East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office.
Officials said 37-year-old Dain Bueche, of New Roads, informed Pointe Coupee authorities Thursday afternoon about a possible homicide. Since then, multiple law enforcement agencies have participated in a search.
According to EBRSO, Bueche's sister contacted the Pointe Coupee Parish Sheriff's Office, believing her brother had killed someone. She told deputies that she saw her brother covered in blood and he had told her a woman pulled a knife on him after he picked her up in Baton Rouge.
According to the sister's statement, Bueche then told her he took the knife away and allegedly stabbed her with it and also allegedly beat the woman with a dumbbell. After that, he allegedly dumped her body in a wooded area in East Baton Rouge Parish.
EBRSO said officers with the New Roads Police Department were sent out to his home where they saw him cleaning his vehicle of what seemed to be blood. Officers said Bueche tried to get away once he saw police, but they were able to take him into custody.
Once at the Pointe Coupee Sheriff's Office, deputies said Bueche admitted to telling his sister about killing the woman and dumping her body. Samples from Bueche's house and vehicle were analyzed by the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab and tested positive for human blood.
After searching "around the clock," investigators located the body in a wooded area in the 319000 block of Greenwell Springs Road.
Deputies identified the woman as Yvette Pollard, 25, and said her remains had injuries that fit with what Bueche described.
Bueche was transferred from Pointe Coupee Detention Center and booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.
