GONZALES, LA (WAFB) -
Two people have been killed and one is seriously injured in an apparent home invasion on Babin Rd. in Gonzales.
The home invasion happened Saturday in the 39000 block of Babin Road, deputies believe it happened between midnight and 10 a.m. Saturday. The Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office was called to the home Saturday night after family members were unable to get in touch with the people living in the home.
Once they got there, no one answered the door and they had to force their way in.
Robert Irwin Marchand, 74, and step-son Douglas Dooley, 50, were found dead in the home. Shirley Marchand, 72, was still alive when deputies found her and was taken to a hospital where she had emergency surgery.
Ascension Parish Sheriff Jeff Wiley says the quiet Christian couple are not ideal victims. All three were found with their throats slit and their bodies showed signs of blunt trauma. There were no signs of forced entry.
According to Sheriff Wiley, an entire safe containing gold coins was stolen. The estimated value of all four coin sets is valued around $500,000.
"We think that they knew that there were valuables in the house and yes we think they knew something about the Marchands," says Sheriff Wiley.
The Ascension Parish Sheriff says the victims are well known and respected citizens and they were viciously attacked in their homes. Sheriff Wiley also says the department is working non stop to identify and capture the killers.
Anyone with information is urged to contact the Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office at 225-621-INFO(4636) or Crime Stoppers at 225-344-STOP(7867).
We will bring you more information as it becomes available.
