Inmate Death

On Wednesday evening, September 27, 2017, at the St. Mary Parish Law Enforcement Center, a correctional deputy observed an unresponsive inmate. Deputies and medical staff responded immediately and began rendering aid. Acadian Ambulance was called to the location and transported the inmate to Franklin Foundation Hospital.


Despite their efforts, 59-year old Rodney Frederick of Bayou Vista was pronounced deceased at Franklin Foundation Hospital. No foul play is suspected. An investigation is ongoing and has been turned over to the St. Mary Parish Coroner’s Office.


Frederick had been incarcerated since March on charges of aggravated crimes against nature and aggravated incest.
