HAMMOND, La. (BRPROUD) – There are questions but very few answers when it comes to the death of Taysia Lynn Folse 14, of Houma.

On June 30, “the body of 14-year-old Taysia Lynn Folse of Houma, LA. was found in a secluded area east of Ponchatoula. “ says Chief Jimmy Travis.

Folse’s body was found in a wooded area.

An investigation followed and on August 12, the 14-year old’s death was ruled a homicide.

Detectives are still working this case as no one seems to know what happened to Taysia.

TPSO says, “Detectives believe a tattoo on Taysia’s left arm could help with the investigation.”
