Longtime Ball, La., officer Carl Bordelon died of an apparent heart attack while working his overnight shift, town officials said Saturday.

The body of Bordelon, 51, who rose from patrolman to assistant police chief in 20 years with the department was discovered inside Town Hall on Saturday morning. An autopsy is scheduled for Monday, officials said.

Bordelon was assigned to the 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. shift. A family member saw him on patrol around 2:30 a.m. the TownTalk reports.

Bordelon was scheduled to marry longtime girlfriend Alicia Leggett on March 28. Other survivors include two sons, Christopher and Jacob. Funeral arrangements are incomplete at Rush Funeral Home in Pineville.

I spent 35 years in one of the largest Community Colleges in the US teaching Forensic Psychology. I think it is imperative that all LEOS are exposed to healthful approaches to lifestyle while using yearly Blood Work as the criteria for direction to diet. Criteria would include LDL, HDL, triglycerides, random blood glucose, A1C, (then and only then, Cholesterol). Garner--the non Choke Hold death in NYC was a classic Metabolic Syndrome death miscalled "choke hold death" by misinformed liberal Media. LEOS must diligently avoid what Garner chose to eat.

Regardless of perceived health hazards some people are just predisposed to heart issues. My condolences to Chief Bordelon's family and to his agency.

Rest In Peace, Brother.
