A TV news story is causing quite a stir in West Baton Rouge Parish and causing some to question whether a 59-year-old Addis woman’s death last year was in fact a homicide.

Sandra Rinaudo died in her home last year, on Aug. 9, 2013. She was survived by her husband, Edward (“Eddie”), her daughter, Ragean Bellelo, and her son, Derrick.
