The Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office arrested 34-year-old Mario Vasconcelos of Larose for engaging in carnal copulation with livestock. Detectives collected DNA evidence linking him to the crime.
In June, a Cut Off resident reported someone was trespassing on his property. Detectives learned Vasconcelos entered the building and engaged in “crimes against nature” with livestock, including a donkey and a goat. Detectives collected human DNA evidence from the livestock and it was submitted to the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab for analysis. A DNA match identified Vasconcelos as the suspect.
Vasconcelos allegedly admitted to four instances of copulating with livestock.
