A woman is dead of a gunshot wound in a rural area off the Edgerly DeQuincy Road which is south of DeQuincy. At this point, officials are still investigating whether it was murder or suicide.

Calcasieu Sheriff's Deputies were at the residence of Leo Thibodeaux at 4190 Edgerly Dequincy Road from just before 3 a.m. Wednesday until just before 2 p.m.

They confirm 37 year old Toni Marie Frabbiele died of a gunshot wound but they are still investigating. Sheriff Tony Mancuso said, "Certainly what we have to do at this point is take all the evidence, take his statements, confer with the coroner on the type of wound and how they believe that this could have happened and formulate what we believe happened in that house and that may take a day or so. Right now again that's why we're investigating it as suspicious rather than ruling it a suicide or homicide."

Deputies and crime scene investigators were at the house for about eleven hours before releasing the scene.

The sheriff asks anyone with information concerning what happened at the house to contact deputies at 491-3605.

The following is a Press Release from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office:

On March 28 at approximately 3:00 a.m., the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office was called to a home on Edgerly DeQuincy Highway in DeQuincy in regard to one of the residents lying on the floor of the bedroom unresponsive.

Toni Marie Frabbiele, 37, was pronounced dead at the scene from a gunshot wound.

Her live-in boyfriend, Leo Thibodeaux, 52, was brought in for questioning by detectives but has been released.  However, the investigation is in the preliminary stages and is continuing.

Thibodeaux was arrested in February for a prior domestic abuse incident involving Frabbiele.

CPSO Detective Andree Daugereaux is the lead investigator on this case.
