Mother and daughter found dead in apparent murder-suicide in Thibodaux

Mother and daughter found dead in apparent murder-suicide in Thibodaux

Detectives responded early Sunday morning to a double shooting, believed to be a murder-suicide, at a residence in Thibodaux.

The bodies of 26-year-old Nakesha Carrere and 5-year-old Abigail Creamer were discovered at the scene. Both had suffered a single gunshot wound to the head.

Creamer’s father discovered the scene after arriving at the residence in the 900 block of Burma Road in Thibodaux, and called 9-1-1 just before noon. Detectives discovered a detailed letter inside the residence, which they believe was penned by Carrere.

“This is a tragic incident, and we extend our heartfelt sympathies to the family,” said Sheriff Craig Webre. “Investigators are still processing evidence, but we are confident in our determination of a murder-suicide.”
