GONZALES - The third victim in an Ascension Parish home invasion and robbery died today.

Shirley Marchand had been hospitalized since February 18th when someone broke into her home on Babin Road.  Her husband Irwin Marchand and son Doug Dooley were murdered.

Investigator said the attackers slit their throats and stole a safe containing rare gold coins estimated to be worth more than $100,000.  It was found days later in Livingston Parish.

Ascension Parish Sheriff Jeff Wiley, who knew Mrs. Marchand personally, said that he would like to publicly express his condolences to the Marchand and Dooley family, at "such a tragic and senseless loss."

Wiley added that he and the members of the Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office, "will continue to devote the full measure of Sheriff's Office resources toward bringing those responsible for the commission of this horrific crime to justice."

A $5,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of persons responsible for these murders.
