By By Lance Traweek / American Press

The Beauregard Parish Sheriff’s Office on Sunday received information from Caddo Parish Sheriff’s officials that a homicide

likely occurred at a home west of DeRidder.

The suspect’s name, victim’s name or address where the crime occurred were not released Sunday night.

Upon arrival to the address, a 40-year-old female was found to be the victim of a homicide.

Police are having difficulty locating her next of kin, including a teenage daughter, said Joe Toler, BPSO spokesman.

Detectives believe the boyfriend is the

suspect and he is currently in custody in Shreveport and will be

transported to Beauregard

Parish.

“(The boyfriend) had said some things that led the sheriff’s office to believe that something bad had happened at that address,

but I don’t know the extent of him confessing,” Toler said.

An exact motive has not been released, but the homicide is being investigated as a domestic situation that “got out of control,”

Toler said.
