We haven't been able to find the video yet and there's no indication of foul play. However, we're not through with the investigation. We're still trying to find out as much as we can. It's certainly not easy to see this and you know, the officer that responded to this, it's hard for him to see, I know," said Orange Beach Police Chief Billy Wilkins. Police say it's too early to tell whether drugs or alcohol played a role. Talbot was vacationing in Orange Beach with friends. Talbot graduated from E. D. White Catholic High School in Thibodaux.
