Sheriff: Victim killed execution-style over money
PLAQUEMINE- The Iberville Parish Sheriff told WBRZ News 2 Thursday afternoon, it appears the motive for a gruesome execution-style killing at a camp in the swamp a day earlier was motivated by money.
Sheriff Brett Stassi said the victim, Kye Boudreaux, did not like to go to his camp along the Upper Grand River alone. Murder suspect Detrell Scott, 22, accompanied Boudreaux to the camp where Boudreaux was found dead, on his knees. He had been shot.
"He invited the wrong person," Stassi said.
Stassi said while investigating the murder Wednesday that Scott and Boudreaux were distant friends.
Scott was whisked away to jail a few hours after Boudreaux's body was found. Scott faces charges of first degree murder and armed robbery. The victim's wallet and money were missing from the camp.
Stassi said Scott confessed.
