DENHAM SPRINGS, La. (BRPROUD) — Livingston Parish Sheriff Jason Ard says the investigation into Tiki Tubing co-owner Patricia Fore is now complete.

Ard said the case will be submitted to the district attorney for review and prosecution.

“I work every day to ensure we are doing the job the public expects us to do, the job that Livingston Parish deserves. The totality of the circumstances involving this investigation from 2019 to today, have been reviewed thoroughly and addressed internally by me,” said Ard.

Additional details of the investigation were not released by the sheriff’s office.

On Friday, May 20, Patricia Fore, 58, was arrested on a sexual battery charge days after her husband, John Fore, 66, was arrested on the same charge. John turned himself in to authorities on Monday, May 16. The couple co-owns Tiki Tubing in Denham Springs. Sheriff Ard released a statement on the day of Patricia’s arrest stating that the 2019 case was not investigated “as diligently as it should have been.”

Days following the arrests, Tiki Tubing’s website was updated to say that it will be closed this summer, citing the closure was due to “new rules being enforced on the river and other complications.” The website’s message also says, “We want to thank the many thousands of our customers who have enjoyed tubing the river with us over the past years, it has been fun.”

The company also recently made headlines after the family of a man who drowned on Father’s Day last year while tubing filed a wrongful death lawsuit. The suit filed in the Middle District Court of Louisiana says Keith Hilliard’s death could have been prevented. Hilliard’s wife, Lisa, has previously spoken out about the accident, claiming that they were told that the river was safe and lifejackets were reserved only for children.

Sheriff Ard asks any victims to come forward and call the sheriff’s office at 225-686-2241 x1.
