Deputies Look for Knife That Killed Ex-Prosecutor MANDEVILLE (AP) – Sheriff’s deputies used metal detectors over the weekend to search for the knife that killed former prosecutor Margaret A. Coon, who had been jogging near her home in an exclusive subdivision west of Mandeville Thursday night. St. Tammany Parish investigators believe Ms. Coon, 41, a native of Alexandria, was stabbed between 7 p.m. and midnight while jogging between the clubhouse of the Beau Chene Country Club and her condominium. Ms. Coon’s body, with a single stab wound to the back, was discovered Friday morning by another jogger. Around 7:30 p.m. Thursday, a bearded man reportedly pulled a knife on a clubhouse employee, said Col. Wilmer J. “Bill” Fandal, chief of the St. Tammany Sheriff’s Office criminal division. Deputies have not determined if the incidents are related. The intruder was discovered in a building that houses the club’s golf carts. As he fled, his arm moved as if he were throwing something, Chief Deputy Wallace B. Laird said. Six deputies combed a patch of underbrush near the clubhouse Saturday attempting to find a knife, Fandal said
