Death Of Former LG Woman Being Investigated by Rangers

Moulton Police and the Texas Rangers are investigating the death of a 46-year-old woman who was found dead in her home on Friday, Jan. 26.

Moulton Police Chief Daniel Beyer did not name the woman, but the Record learned this week that she was Jennifer Luce, formerly of La Grange, and the girlfriend of former Fayette County Justice of the Peace Tommy Tipton. According to Beyer’s report, Officer Raul Diaz responded to a concerned citizen who requested a welfare check at a home in the 500 block of Bobkat Street in Moulton at around 1 p.m. last Friday.

All of the doors were locked and Diaz could not get a response from the woman who was believed to be inside, Beyer said. A family member unlocked the door for police. Diaz found a 46-year-old female unresponsive inside the residence. Lavaca County EMS arrived and determined that she was deceased. Justice of the Peace Wayne Denson performed an inquest and recorded her time of death at 2:30 p.m. Beyer said there was no sign of a suicide and Luce did not leave a note.
