For unknown reasons, investigators say she went off the right side of the road and into the large bayou south of LA 352. Her body was found once the submerged vehicle was recovered from the bayou. She was not properly restrained, according to troopers.

Bourque was pronounced dead at the scene by the St. Martin Parish Coroner's Office. A proper blood sample was not able to be obtained for analysis because of her exposure to the elements.
Investigators say they will continue looking into this case.
