PORT ALLEN- Sheriff's deputies said they're questioning someone tonight about a recent murder at a West Baton Rouge trailer park.

The West Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office cautioned that even though someone's being questioned in connection with Kerry Palmer's murder this past Monday, it doesn't mean their search is over.

Palmer's neighbors left notes near the crime tape today, messages for a friend taken too soon as well as stuffed animals and crosses. The 44-year-old and her dog Zeus were shot at her home at Dude's Trailer Park off Highway 190. Investigators said they're piecing together all the evidence, as neighbors try to heal.

"Hopefully cops will sit there and look at that and see that people love this person and they'll go far and beyond their duty and actually catch this person that hurt her, I want him caught," said one neighbor who asked to remain anonymous.

Neighbors and the owner of Dude's Trailer Park described Palmer as a good person, and wanted people to remember her kindness.
