The Lafourche Parish Sheriff's Office is on the scene investigating two deaths at a Larose residence.

Lt. Brennan Matherne, the LPSO PIO has informed The Times on Tuesday afternoon that authorities currently believe the incident was a murder-suicide. 

Authorities were alerted today after a man and a woman were found dead inside a bedroom at a residence in the 100 block of Louis Street in Oct. 1.

Matherne said there was no signs of forced entry on the scene and surveillance from the scene also shows no signs of forced entry or anyone entering or leaving the residence besides the two victims. 

Matherne said detectives are still investigating to confirm exactly what happened and to 100 percent ensure that the initial ruling of a murder-suicide is correct. 

The Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office will have more information on this incident as it can be made available.

The Times, too, will continue to update the story as more becomes available.
