Sandra Jefferson dies early Saturday morning

Updated:

New Orleans, La. – The Orleans Parish Coroner's Office says Sandra Peters Jefferson died early Saturday morning around 1:30 a.m. due to blunt force trauma to the head.

Sandra Jefferson is the wife of Archie Jefferson, who is the younger brother of former congressman William Jefferson.

The investigation continues, but at this time the chief says no one has been arrested but the police department is questioning several people in the case. 

On Friday, weapons were recovered from the scene, but Serpas says he doesn't know if they were involved in Mrs. Jefferson's wounds.

Sandra Jefferson was rushed to the hospital around 3:30 Friday morning from her Broadmoor home.  Serpas says her husband, Archie, called police saying he had just gotten home to find his wife lying on the floor in a bedroom.

Serpas says Archie Jefferson has been interviewed along with other people, but wouldn't say if any of them are suspects.

Early Friday morning, police towed away Archie Jefferson's truck, a Hummer.
