LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - Lafayette police are still interviewing people as part of an investigation into the death of a Louisiana-Lafayette student and the severe beating of that student's roommate.
Twenty-year-old Kenneth Donnelly Jr. was found beaten to death in his home Oct. 28. A roommate was badly beaten and remains hospitalized, although his condition is improving.
Cpl. Paul Mouton, spokesman for the Lafayette Police Department, said no suspects have been named.
Investigators have a general idea about the possible motive for the crime, but are not ready to publicly release that information.
Police still are declining to release the surviving victim's name for his own safety, but Mouton said he is doing well.
