St. Landry Parish, La — A man and woman found dead inside a Leonville home on Tuesday were both shot to death, according to the St. Landry Parish Sheriff's Office.
Both Lawrence Davis and Marlene Weston were found after a concerned family member called the St. Landry Parish Sheriff’s Office aftershe had not heard from them in a few days.
St. Landry Parish Sheriff Bobby J. Guidroz stated “Detectives investigated the scene and during their investigation found a small caliber revolver in the bed with the two victims. Due to the condition of the bodies, it was not immediately clear to the detectives as to the cause of death. An autopsy was ordered for the next day, where it was learned that both victims had been shot by a small caliber pistol.”
Deputies are interviewing both neighbors and family members of the deceased, and are hoping that evidence processed by the Acadiana Crime Lab will give them leads.
