Deputy Katie Leger | September 2018

In early August the CPSO fingerprinting system that is run through the Louisiana State Police database had been going down continuously during work hours due to an overload of customers.  Individuals needing their fingerprints were having to make numerous trips back and forth with the possibility their applications could not be completed.

 

Deputy Leger realized that during the evening hours the system was not overloaded and it would be possible to process more applications.  Leger took it upon herself to return to the office one night, after her regular working hours, and process numerous applications so customers could return the next morning to complete their fingerprinting process.

Deputy Williams not only performed her normal duty by sending out the BOLO to deputies at CPSO, she took it upon herself to contact Border Patrol due to the suspects being illegal immigrants. Deputy Williams stayed in contact with the authorities in New Jersey as they received possible locations on the suspects and would immediately update Border Patrol.

 

The suspects and the child were located at a bus station in Texas and Deputy Williams contacted Border Patrol once again, at which time they were able to apprehend the suspects. Deputy Williams then contacted New Jersey to advise them the suspects had been located.

Once they arrived at the residence they were informed by a witness that the woman had gone inside and locked the doors.  They attempted to make contact with the woman but were unsuccessful. After checking all doors and windows to the home for a point of entry, they decided forced entry needed to be made into the residence.

 

Once inside the home they observed the woman unresponsive and unconscious on the sofa with several self-inflicted wounds. Deputies immediately applied tourniquets to the wounds in an attempt to slow or stop the bleeding while waiting for medical personnel to arrive.
