From Mandeville Police:
On March 7, 2019, 45 year old Danearl Brown of Laplace, was booked into the St Tammany Parish Jail on arrest warrants, charging him with 2nd Degree Murder and Distribution of Heroin.

This case began on June 2, 2018, when Mandeville Police was dispatched to a death investigation in the 1100 Block of Villere Street. The resident/victim, was identified as 47 year old Christopher Stier. The initial investigation, which consisted of witness statements and various pieces of physical evidence, pointed towards a drug overdose. In November 2018, the St. Tammany Parish Coroner’s Office confirmed those suspicions, finding heroin and at least two different opioids in the victims toxicology.


In the following months, with the aid of assisting agencies, detectives carried out search warrants and followed up on investigatory leads that identified the suspected drug dealer who supplied the fatal doses those months earlier. In February of 2019, detectives were finally able to obtain arrest warrants on Danearl Brown on the aforementioned charges. After the March 7th arrest, Brown remains in the St. Tammany Parish Jail on a $300,000.00 bond.

“As Chief, I would like to commend my detectives for their tenacity in being able to piece together the final hours of Mr. Stier’s life and objectively connect him to his suspected dealer. I believe we have put together a solid case that will be instrumental in Brown’s prosecution.”
