The untimely death of a East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney Officer uncovered a problem with how authorities handled evidence, guns specifically. Drug prosecutor Dana Ashford died of pancreatic cancer in 1997, since that time an internal police investigation found that Ashford had been stealing weapons that were initially meant for melting at a local foundry. After his death police discovered two crates filled with guns in the former officer's home. The case also spurred an examination of how the police department deals with custody of evidence and internal investigation practices.
