Authorities say they are now investigating as “suspicious” the Wednesday death of a woman that was initially reported as a suicide by shooting.

Christy Bourque, 37, of the 16200 block of St. Elmo Road, was found dead around 5 a.m. on Dec. 3, according to the Vermilion Parish Sheriff’s Office.

Investigators are waiting on an autopsy report to determine Bourque’s exact cause of death, the Sheriff’s Office said in a news release Thursday.
