Former Brusly Chief of Police Jamie Whaley is under investigation, once again, by the state Inspector General’s office.
An investigation by the FBI and state Inspector General earlier this year, which ultimately led to his resignation from office, uncovered Whaley’s alleged theft of $1,120 in gasoline, which he used in his personal vehicle and boat.
Summer has arrived, and with it, the sweltering Louisiana heat, the sounds of children playing outdoors, the high-spraying water at the WBR splash pads, vacations, camps and more.
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.
The WBR Parish Coroner’s Office ruled Rinaudo’s manner of death as a homicide, but a grand jury for the state of Louisiana on Nov. 14, 2013 found “no true bill to any crime according to the law of the State of Louisiana and against the peace and dignity of the same.”
