JENNINGS — Police said Monday they were searching for multiple suspects in the double homicide of a young Jennings couple

found dead in their home Sunday.

Katrenna Segura Williams, 30, and her

husband Charles Williams Jr., 25, were found inside their home at 122

Seagraves St.

just before 5 p.m. by a relative, Police Chief Todd D’Albor

said.The couple’s 4-year-old son was also found in the home, but

unharmed, he said. The child was released to the custody of family

members after being examined at an area hospital.

“We are still in the preliminary stages of the investigation, but at this point we are treating it as a double homicide,”

D’Albor said Monday. “We have ruled out any domestic issue here.”

Physical evidence at the scene indicates foul play and that multiple suspects were involved in the couple’s deaths, he said.

“We believe there is more than one suspect involved,” D’Albor said.

The husband and wife were found in separate parts of the home, he said.

“Apparently a family member went to the home (Sunday) and located them after they had not been heard from in some time,” he

said. “We are still working on the timeline.”

The couple’s deaths are believed to have occurred sometime between Friday night and Saturday morning, based on information

from family and friends, D’Albor said.

Their cause of death has not been released pending autopsies, he said.

The bodies were transported late Sunday to the Calcasieu Parish Coroner’s Office.

The house remained an “active crime

scene” Monday with police and crime scene tape securing the area.Deputy

Chief Danny Semmes said authorities were at the home until 2 a.m. Monday

and planned to return later in the day to

continue to investigate the crime scene.“We want to take our time

and be extremely thorough,” D’Albor said. “We want to solve this case

and give the closure to these

families.”Investigators planned to canvass the neighborhood Monday

and talk to potential witnesses, Semmes said.Investigators followed up

on numerous tips, D’Albor said.Anyone with information is asked to call

the police department’s 24-hour tip line at 275-9002. All callers will

remain anonymous.This is the city’s first homicide in nearly two years,

D’Albor said.
