IBERVILLE, LA (WAFB) – Investigators have arrested a suspect in connection to the death of a woman whose body was found dumped in Whiskey Bay.
Detectives with the Iberville Parish Sheriff’s Office confirm they have arrested Jonathan Allee, 28, and charged him with second-degree murder in connection to the case. Sheriff Brett Stassi said Allee is the victim’s husband but they did not share a last name.
The body of Elizabeth Ferrell, 29, of Humble, Texas was discovered by a fisherman Saturday, April 23 at roughly 11 a.m. An autopsy was conducted and it was determined that she died from strangulation.
Sheriff Stassi said they believe her body was thrown from I-10 between the Ramah and Whiskey Bay exits the day before her body was discovered.
The sheriff said many people use those waterways to dump bodies, which is why Iberville Parish works many cases of bodies that are found.
Allee was arrested in Humble, Texas around 3 p.m. by the Harris County Sheriff’s Office. The Iberville Parish Sheriff’s Office will work to get Allee extradited to Louisiana so he can face charges.
