ETHEL- There were no signs of forced entry at the house where a married couple was murdered, according to the East Feliciana Parish Sheriff's Office.

That information came out two days after Connie and Eddie Earl Hall were found shot to death inside their home.

The gruesome discovery was made around 4 p.m. at their home on Lillian Lane. Investigators haven't released much information, but did say they are questioning persons of interest.

"We've been questioning people since Sunday night," Detecitve Don McKey said.

On Monday, the State Police Crime Lab went back to the scene to process evidence. McKey wouldn't say where the victims were in the house when they were found, or where they were shot. The case is especially tough, because McKey knew the victims.

"His whole family has done nothing but work," McKey said. "They would do anything for anybody, just good people."

Neighbors call the situation unsettling and have taken precautions to stay safe.

"I'm not worried," Doug Snider said. "I've got protection."

Meanwhile, investigators hope they can provide justice for the victims' family.

"We don't have many murders, and we try to get them solved as quickly as we can," McKey said.

Call the East Feliciana Parish Sheriff's Office if you know anything. You don't need to leave your name.
