UPDATE: Autopsy reveals Fentanyl in Crystal Scott’s system

The Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office received the preliminary autopsy results for Crystal Scott. The report indicated no signs of trauma, but there was Fentanyl present in her body. The level of Fentanyl is undetermined at this time and a full toxicology report is pending.

Scott’s exact cause of death is still under investigation

Scott’s body was found stuffed in a Rubbermaid container on Friday, Jan. 28th off Bayou Narcisse in Ascension Parish.  


Since then, APSO put out the names and pictures of three people wanted as persons of interest in the case. Deputies wanted to question the two men and one woman.

The full toxicology report could take up to one to two months before it’s completed.

This is an ongoing investigation and anyone with additional information is asked to call APSO at 225-621-8300.
