Lake Charles Police now say they are investigating a murder-suicide following the discovery of two bodies in a home Wednesday afternoon.
Police say 32-year-old Kody Todd Fontenot of Branch shot and killed 25-year-old Mia Katherine Trahan of Kaplan. Police say he then turned the weapon on himself.
Just after 12:00 pm on January 8th, police found the bodies in a Calcasieu Parish home. Both had fatal gunshot wounds.
Police say they initially responded to the home on a welfare concern call.
Trahan grew up in Kaplan and graduated from Kaplan High School. Community members I spoke to say Trahan was known well, and in such a small town, everyone knows everyone. The funeral services will be held 1 p.m. Saturday at the Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Kaplan.
Trahan's full obituary is online here.
