Earlier this month we brought you a story about 17-year-old Giah Barrere, who was found dead at the Paragon Casino Resort in Marksville.
A person has now been arrested in relation to the survey.
The Tunica-Biloxi Police Department said they arrested 21-year-old Alexis Noel Dauzat of Marksville on one count of failing to seek assistance.
“The findings of this ongoing investigation supported the issuance of an arrest warrant, which proceeded without incident,” Tunica-Biloxi Police Chief Harold Pierite, Sr. said, but no details are forthcoming. related information is not available at this time. Any situation where someone is exposed to dangers and/or illegal substances is a travesty and a big concern that our department takes seriously.
Chief Pierite added that the investigation is still ongoing and further details will be released as they become available. He also asked anyone with information about this incident to contact the Tunica-Biloxi Police Department.
At the time of Barrere’s death, authorities said they did not believe the cause of death was a stabbing or shooting. However, little other information has been released.
