~ Special Autopsy ~

In reference to the Shelia Comeaux case:

According to the family, an autopsy was immediately ordered by Sheriff Edwards and was to be conducted only by one particular individual from the Calcasieu coroner’s office who was out of town attending a convention. After canceling his obligations, he returned in the middle of the night to complete the autopsy by morning in response to Sheriff Edwards’ “special” request. The family paid for copies of the autopsy but never received a complete copy.  (Confirmed by this post from Shelia’s daughter).

I can say this that I did speak to a victim’s former husband and he is completely left out of the loop on anything. The strange thing is…he is very helpful and has a wealth of information and to date, has never been questioned by law enforcement.

Speaking of inquiring minds…..I’ve heard there was some rather disturbing conversation at Arnold Benoit’s celebration party when he ran for Sheriff……are you able to expound on that??

In answer to the question from g8tr — Several years ago, at Mr. Benoit’s victory party following the sheriff election, three black men walked into the building and began speaking with several of the participants. They were somewhat loud and strident, saying that they had driven from Texas and were going to Ricky Edwards’ victory party. They didn’t know any of the people there and none of the people at the party seemed to know them. They began talking about Mr. Benoit not playing ball and saying that he would never be sheriff. As the three were at the door, apparently preparing to leave, one of them said that they could do what they wanted in Jeff Davis Parish. Another one of the men stated, “we could come here and wipe out a whole family and nothing would happen to us.” Several people witnessed and heard this. One of the women who was present actually began to cry and seemed to become ill at hearing this. As the men were leaving, they were followed outside. They got into a dark, black looking Suburban or similar vehicle with Texas plates. One person jotted down their license plate number as they drove away. They seemed to have possibly been drinking. The three may have simply been talking big but they sure got the attention of those people that heard them. It was actually scary, according to the witnesses.
