Lafayette Police are investigating the death of a Lafayette woman was who found on fire near Murdock Park in October.
Julie Meyers, 60, left the Lafayette Drury Inn and Suites about 2 a.m. on Oct. 30, according to a Facebook post made by Meyers' daughter Crystal Morris. LPD responded to a call to assist a woman on fire near the corner of North 18th and Ferry streets about 7:30 a.m. From there, she was taken to a local hospital for treatment, according to an LPD press release.
Meyers died on Wednesday from injuries related to the fire.

The case was originally logged the following day in LPD's daily bulletins as an "UNKOWN PROBLEM" reported at 11:32 a.m. on Oct. 30, which is why The Exponent didn't initially report it. The case summary reads "Report of a suspicious incident."

The Exponent has reached out to Morris for comment.
