Thanksgiving Day got off to a tragic start as St. Martin and Iberia Parish sheriff offices quickly brought a murder-suicide case to a resolution.

Early Thanksgiving Day morning, at approximately 2:44 a.m., deputies with the St. Martin Parish Sheriff’s Office responded to a 911 call in reference to a deceased female located in the parking lot of a business in the 1100 block of Evangeline Thruway in Broussard.
