Deputies still looking for leads in pregnant woman's killing
GLYNN - Authorities are still looking for those responsible for killing a pregnant woman from Baton Rouge more than two months ago.
Around 1:34 a.m. Feb. 14, deputies with the Pointe Coupee Parish Sheriff's Office were dispatched to a location on Russell Lane in Glynn after a man called and said his girlfriend had been shot. Authorities say the couple was in bed when someone outside the residence opened fire.
According to the sheriff's office, Aerial Edwards was pronounced dead at an area hospital. Officials confirmed Edwards was pregnant at time but couldn't say how far along she was.
The sheriff took to Facebook Tuesday to plea for anyone with information to come forward. Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call the sheriff's office at (225) 638-5445.
