Terrebonne deputies investigate death of unidentified woman

HOUMA, La. (AP) — Sheriff's deputies have arrested a 50-year-old Terrebonne Parish man in the death of an unidentified woman.

Sheriff Jerry Larpenter says Lee Paul Dupre was booked early Monday with obstruction of justice. He is awaiting a bond hearing.

Larpenter says a caller reported finding the nude body of a woman inside a home where Dupre lived. Police say the caller told them he had not seen Dupre in several days and went to his home to check on him.

The sheriff says deputies found the nude body of a white female wrapped in a sheet on a couch in the living room.
Larpenter says their investigation revealed Dupre found the victim Wednesday and allegedly moved the body, covered it and further altered the scene.
