BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Investigators with the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office have recovered the body of a woman believed to be connected to a fatal domestic dispute.

Just after 8 p.m. Sunday, July 21, deputies responded to reports of a shooting on Pinecrest Drive in Denham Springs. The victim was identified as Ronald Cyrus, 26, of Baton Rouge.

Detectives reported the suspect, Jacqueline Danyell Rosaya, 22, of Baton Rouge, was at-large.

In an update Monday, Sheriff Jason Ard says they have recovered the body of a woman appearing to match Rosaya’s description.

“We were notified by our partners with the Zachary Police Department that the body of a female closely matching the description of Jacqueline Danyell Rosaya was located around 6:30a this morning in the 5000 block of E. Central Avenue in Zachary. It appears, from the evidence on hand at this time, that this female died from injuries sustained from a self-inflicted gunshot wound,” Sheriff Ard said in a release.

Rosaya is described as the following:

  • 5’9”
  • 180 pounds
  • Black hair
  • Brown eyes
  • Last seen wearing: Dark shirt, White pants

Rosaya was last seen in the Baton Rouge area driving a black 2011 Audi A4 with the license plate 754BDE.

Ard says investigators believe the suspect and the victim were involved in a “romantic relationship.” A motive is unclear.
