Denham Springs woman dies of apparent heroin overdose

A 22-year-old Denham Springs woman died of an apparent heroin overdose while sitting in her car in the Wal-Mart parking lot late Monday night, Police Chief Scott Jones said Tuesday evening.

Elizabeth Carrier, 31531 Linder Road, was found dead around midnight, Jones said. Surveillance cameras showed her car arriving at the lot around 4 p.m. Monday.

Carrier was in her own car and there were no signs of foul play, Jones said.

“It’s just a very sad and tragic death for a 22-year-old girl,” he said.
