BATON ROUGE - Detectives are investigating the murder of 25-year-old Courtney Lee.

Around 3:30 p.m. the Baton Rouge Fire Department initially responded to the 1000 block of Spanish Town Road on Saturday (June 13) in regards to a brush fire. While crews were putting out the fire they discovered Lee's body. 

Evidence at the scene initially led investigators to believe Lee's death was a homicide. This was corroborated with the East Baton Rouge Parish Coroner's analysis of her death, who reported Monday (June 15) that Lee was killed by multiple gunshot wounds.
