Opelousas Murder Investigation


Opelousas Police now have a lead in a vehicle accident, turned beating, turned murder

Police tell us they now have person of interest in the beating death of Tyrone Mitchell Sunday night.

We talked to Opelousas Police Monday, who said they do have a person of interest in mind they're looking for in this case, but aren't ready to release who that person is just yet.

But, they did say there was another person in the vehicle during the crime, a female and police want this woman to come forward and tell them what happened.

Police tell us if she doesn't, she'll likely be implicated in Mitchell's death.
