A man and a woman were found shot to death at a home located in Larose. Deputies are working to identify a possible suspect.

The Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office reports that victims were discovered at roughly 11:45 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 22. We’re told a family member found them inside the female victim’s apartment located on West 4th Street.

The victims, Nikki Landry, 41, and Harry Lefort, 54, were both shot multiple times. Their relationship was described by family members as “acquaintances.”

“While a motive has not yet been determined, investigators say they do not believe it to be a robbery based on evidence,” Deputy Brennan Matherne, Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office, said.

An autopsy has been scheduled with the Jefferson Parish Coroner’s Office.
