Family of Abbeville Man Asks Community to help Find his Killer

Family, and friends, are reaching out to the community for help finding out who took the life of their loved one. 28-year-old Kyle Trahan was found Friday shot in his Abbeville home on Eaton Drive. So far, police have no suspects.

"Anyone that knows information, be brave, be strong, don't be afraid, come forward and help us to solve this crime, and give our family some peace of mind," said Kyle's Aunt Vicki Arceneaux.

Family and friends say they hope by reaching out to the public, they can prevent another family from going through the same pain. Arceneaux never imagined her family would be in this position.

"I now know that feeling where none of us is going to be able to interact with him," said Arceneaux. "I have to be a voice to other people, protect other families, by asking the public, anyone that has any knowledge, no matter how insignificant it may seem, to please go to the Abbeville Police."

Kyle has a 9-year-old daughter. Arceneaux says she hasn't fully grasped that her father is gone forever.

"I have a son that is almost the same age as Kyle, they're only three years apart," said Arceneaux. "I imagine how my granddaughter, my sons daughter, would feel if she lost her daddy."

She says Kyle was extremely caring, and his life was just starting. Now, not knowing what he could have accomplished, breaks her heart.

"He had just gotten him a really great job working for a land company," said Arceneaux. "He was really happy and his life financially, and everything, was starting to take off."

Kyle's friend, Abigail Eaves, says Kyle was full of life and was an all around amazing man.

"It's different when God takes someone from you because it's their time, and when someone just takes another human being, just takes a loved one from you," said Eaves. "It hurts so much worse and it's not fair."

Police say they have no suspects in Kyle's murder, but are working several leads.

If you have any information in this case please call Abbeville police.
