Tangipahoa sheriff's office mourns loss of deputy
TANGIPAHOA PARISH - Friends and family are mourning the loss of a sheriff's deputy after he died by suicide Sunday afternoon.
Deputy Myles Ledet started his career in law enforcement in the Hammond Police Department as a corrections officer before he joined the sheriff's department as a patrol deputy.
“Deputy Ledet is described by his coworkers as a kind and extremely lovable man,” Police Chief Jimmy Travis said. “He was the kind of person to give you the shirt off his back."
Sheriff Edwards asked the public to keep the Ledet family in their thoughts and prayers as they mourn the loss of a great friend and family member.
