Woman, 58, drowns in community pond seemingly by accident


DENHAM SPRING, La. (AP) - A 58-year-old woman has been found dead in a neighborhood pond.

Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Lori Steele told The Advocate of Baton Rouge that Denham Springs resident Ltanya Grimes appears to have died Wednesday in an accidental drowning, and foul play is not suspected. Steele said it seems Grimes tripped while fishing in the pond and fell into the water.

She said deputies were alerted to the incident at about 4 p.m., but Grimes was dead when they arrived.
