Person of interest in LSU poisoning case has resigned
BATON ROUGE- Police are investigating after an employee at the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine was poisoned on campus.
LSUPD was called to the vet school Wednesday morning in reference to an employee possibly being poisoned. Investigators believe someone intentionally slipped a chemical into the victim's soda.
The employee was taken to an area medical clinic for a check-up. At this point, it doesn't appear that person's condition is serious.
LSUPD says it has a person of interest related to the incident, but it has not yet identified that individual. No one has been taken into custody as of Thursday morning.
Officials confirmed the person of interest "resigned from his position." A spokesperson for LSU has not released the person of interest's name.
Police are currently running tests at the LSP crime lab and may release more information as soon as Thursday afternoon.
