Broussard murder-suicide:

The victims of a fatal shooting that occurred in Lafayette, Louisiana on Monday have been named 51-year-old Katherine Mashburn and 53-year-old Eric Babineaux.

The Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office reported that the two were discovered dead in a murder-suicide that is now under investigation. On what authorities term a “suspicious circumstances call,” the law enforcement agencies said they were summoned to a residence on N. Girouard Road in Broussard.

According to the Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office, a Broussard woman Katherine Mashburn was shot and killed by her estranged husband Eric Babineaux on Monday. Around 1 p.m. on Monday, a report about unusual circumstances led deputies to a home in the 200 block of North Girouard Road.

Public information officer Valerie Ponseti released a statement stating that when deputies arrived at the house, they discovered two bodies inside. According to court records, the couple filed for divorce in January. Ponseti added that according to investigators, Eric Babineaux killed his wife before committing himself.

Following the discovery of two deaths at a Broussard residence earlier this week, investigators from the Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office are looking into what looks to be a murder-suicide. The cause of the horrific occurrence, which has crushed and shattered the hearts of the relatives of the deceased, has not been disclosed by law authorities.
