DENHAM SPRINGS — A 58-year-old Denham Springs woman is dead in what the Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office said Wednesday appears to have been an accidental drowning.
Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Lori Steele said the death occurred in a neighborhood pond off Avoyelles Avenue in the Livingston Trace subdivision, near Juban Road and south of Interstate 12.
Steele said it appears the woman, Ltanya Grimes, tripped into the water while fishing in the pond.
Steele said deputies were notified shortly before 4 p.m., but Grimes was deceased when deputies arrived.
Foul play is not suspected, Steele said.
