Man Admits to Brutal Beating Death of Lauren Tanski


A man who police sought as a person of interest in the beating death of 26-year-old Lauren Tanski confessed to carrying out the brutal crime Tuesday, according to NOPD. Henry Dolliole was located in Jefferson Parish. Under questioning, the 39-year-old admitted to murdering Tanski at her 7th Ward home. 

 

Tanski's body was found brutally beaten early Sunday morning at the home in the 2000 block of Urquhart St. Dolliole, who nola.com reports is the estranged boyfriend of Tanski's roomate, was booked on first degree murder charges and a probation violation. No bond information was available.

 

Detectives began questioning neighbors, and police sought out Dolliole to ask him about the murder. On Tuesday, Jefferson Parish deputies hauled Dolliole after a resident in Harvey recognized him. But Dolliole went from person of interest to suspect once police began to question him about the crime. The man told police he got into an argument with Tanski, then killed her.

 

Dolliole has a lengthy rap sheet, which included probation until 2014 for heroin possession. In the past, he was arrested on nearly 20 different charges, including attempted murder, various drug distrobution charges, robbery, battery and stalking.

 

As he has done many times over his tenure, NOPD Chief Ronal Serpas called attention to the fact that the suspect remained on the streets despite his checkered past.

 

"This suspect has a lengthy rap sheet, and it’s very disturbing that our officers arrested him multiple times- including for attempted murder- yet he was out of jail last Monday, and had the opportunity to bludgeon a woman to death," Serpas said in a statement.

 

The Albany Times-Union reports Tanski was a native of Colonie, which is located in upstate New York. She moved to New Orleans from Troy, New York, two months ago, the paper reported.
