BAYOU BLUE - A 69-year-old woman who was hospitalized last month after Lafourche Parish authorities found her living in filthy conditions has died.

Faye Miller died less than three weeks after she was released from a specialized care facility in Gretna.

The cause of death is under investigation.

Miller was found last month living in a 10-by-16-foot wooden shed littered with human waste.

Her daughter, 30-year-old April Johnson, was later booked with cruelty to the infirm.
