Investigation Update In Rosie Ledet Case

A decision could soon be made about the baby that was born in Acadia Parish. The Allen Parish District Attorney is expected to decide whether charges will be filed within the week.

Rosie Ledet could be charged with unlawful disposal of human remains. She's accused of giving birth to a still born baby in Acadia Parish then placing the fetus in a shed in Allen Parish.
Any charges stemming from how the baby died would have to come from Acadia Parish.


OBERLIN, La. (AP) - The investigation into the death of a nearly full-term fetus found in a storage shed near Elton in July will be presented to the Allen Parish District Attorney's Office.

Peggy Kennedy, chief detective of the Allen Parish Sheriff's Office, said the body was allegedly left there for nearly a week by zydeco singer and musician Mary Rosie Ledet of Iota.

Kennedy said investigators are expected to turn over the investigation file and autopsy report by Friday. Kennedy said Ledet reportedly told police she had a miscarriage on July 1 in Iota, then wrapped the body in a blanket and rode with a bandmate to his home. There, she put the baby in a plastic container in the storage shed.
