LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - A spokesman for the Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office says a 25-year-old man apparently killed himself in the parish jail.
John Mowell tells The Daily Advertiser (https://bit.ly/2afuQnF ) that deputies conducting a wellness check Saturday evening found the body of Kristopher Nelams of Opelousas.
Nelams had been arrested May 19 on a charge of domestic abuse battery.
Mowell said the sheriff’s office is awaiting autopsy results from the Lafayette Parish Coroner’s Office.
The coroner’s office did not return a call Thursday afternoon from The Associated Press.
