An 18-year-old Lafayette man has been arrested on charges of murder after police were called to investigate the violation of a protection order.
Police say an 18-year-old woman called them after Talmadge Jasper, of the 3100 block of Eagles Way Drive in Lafayette, violated a protection order by entering her apartment at 10 Kenosha Court, Lafayette. There, they discovered a man who also lived at the Kenosha Court address was missing.
Police entered Talmadge's apartment with a search warrant, where they found a dead man. Police say the identification of the man as well as cause and manner of death are as yet undetermined, but they believe no other suspects are involved and that the public is no longer threatened.
