International investigators spent the day at a Baton Rouge amusement park, trying to figure out what caused a Lafayette woman to fall from a roller coaster to her death earlier this year.

21-year-old Lindsay Zeno died when she fell from the Xtreme Roller Coaster at Dixie Landin’ in June. The ride has remained close since Zeno's death.

Today, State Fire Marshal Butch Browning and investigators from the ride’s manufacturer, Mauer Sohne, went to the park to do a full inspection of the company’s roller coaster.

Zeno’s family has filed a civil suit against the park, accusing them of not inspecting and maintaining the roller coaster properly.

Browning said he expects to release information on what investigators found in a couple of weeks. He said the report will be very thorough, with pictures and video of the ride.
