By

An investigation is underway into why a murdered Louisiana State Police (LSP) trooper’s body went unnoticed inside his patrol vehicle for over 12 hours on Saturday.

LSP Master Trooper Adam Gaubert, a 19-year department veteran, was found dead inside his patrol car near Old Jefferson Highway and Airline Highway on Oct. 9, according to the Officer Down Memorial Page.

Investigators said Trooper Gaubert was one of five people who were shot by 31-year-old Matthew Mire during a multi-jurisdictional shooting spree, FOX News reported.

The trooper’s body was discovered more than 12 hours after he was ambushed, according to LSP Superintendent Colonel Lamar Davis.

The series of events leading up to Trooper Gaubert’s murder began when Mire allegedly broke into a Livingston Parish home and opened fire on two people inside, WABC reported.

According to the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office (LPSO), a male victim suffered a gunshot wound to the arm and a female victim was shot in the arm and the leg.

Both were rushed to a local hospital and are expected to recover from their injuries, Livingston Parish Sheriff Jason Ard told WABC.
