A man set to stand trial Tuesday in Vermilion Parish on a cold-case aggravated rape charge was found dead at his Houma home Tuesday from a single gunshot wound to the upper torso.
The matter remains under investigation.
David Dore was accused of the 1986 rape of a 30-year-old Abbeville woman, the Abbeville Meridional reports. Investigators say they connected Dore to the crime by comparing a DNA sample taken from Dore to DNA recovered from in 1986.
