Family hoping for a break in St. Martinville cold cases

Posted: Updated:

Three families still need your help tonight, finding closure and justice.

These are three different cases with one thing in common, still no arrests.

New St. Martinville police chief, Rickey Martin, recently announced he's re-opening the investigations into the deaths of Casey Alexander, Bianca Davis and Susan George.

Alexander was shot and killed during a home invasion in 2014. Davis was caught in crossfire and was shot in the head in 2015. And George was found dead in her home which caught on fire, her death was ruled a homicide in 2016.

"I try to take it one day at a time, there's not one day that I don't think of her. I listen to her favorite songs on the way to work sometimes because I miss her. But I'm just hoping to get it solved at this point that's all I want, that's all my family wants," said Lacie Livingston, the daughter of George.

Almost two years later and Livingston still doesn't know who's to blame for the death of her mother.

"It's the second Christmas second thanksgiving second birthday that we've had without her and still no answers. I pray about it, try to stay positive and remember the good memories of her," said Livingston through tears.    

George's body was found inside a burning home in 2016, her death was ruled a homicide. Since then, she said, she has not heard of updates. And it's the mysterious circumstances surrounding her death that continue to haunt her family.

"I don't have a name to even assume who did it but it was just too close to home. It was too personal. I mean the way she passed. It wasn't behind the fire you know it was they slit her throat that's how she died, arson was just to cover up them killing her," said Livingston.

St. Martinville police chief Rickey Martin wouldn't confirm the exact cause of death.

"Now that I've reviewed the files I think there's more that we can do," said Martin, who said he wants to start each case from scratch.

Martin is hoping the community can work with police to bring closure to the families.

"There's not going to be any closure until we find out who did it. Assume responsibility for this, that's all I want that's all anyone would want," pleaded Livingston.
