LOCKPORT, La. (AP) — Authorities say an autopsy shows that the wife of a man accused of killing three people and wounding three others suffocated and drowned.
Terrebonne Parish Sheriff Jerry Larpenter released the results of the autopsy Friday afternoon.
Maj. Malcolm Wolfe with the sheriff's department said in an email that the evidence also indicates that Benjamin Freeman killed his wife, Denise Freeman, before he went on a rampage and killed others Thursday.
Denise Freeman's body was found Thursday in a bathtub by deputies hunting for Benjamin Freeman.
Benjamin Freeman killed himself Thursday with the shotgun he'd used to kill his former mother-in-law and the CEO of a hospital he left in 2011.
