Sheriff: Mother, 26, kills 5-year-old daughter, then self
THIBODAUX - The Lafourche Parish sheriff says a 26-year-old Thibodaux woman apparently killed her 5-year-old daughter, then herself.
Sheriff Craig Webre identifies them as Nakesha Carrere and her daughter, Abigail Creamer.
He says in a news release that the child's father found their bodies when he arrived at the home shortly before noon Sunday.
Webre says detectives found a detailed letter which they believe Carerre had written, and are confident that the deaths were a murder-suicide.
“This is a tragic incident, and we extend our heartfelt sympathies to the family,” Webre said. “Investigators are still processing evidence, but we are confident in our determination of a murder-suicide.”
