JEFFERSON PARISH, LA (WVUE) - Investigators said the killing of a Slidell man started on Facebook, where he was lured with the promise of a date with one of his accused attackers.
The body of Cordaryle Robert was discovered Wednesday in Jefferson Parish. Detectives in a multi-jurisdictional investigation said Dana Lemar, 23, and Terrance Calloway, 28, disguised themselves online.
They said Friday night, Lemar went to Slidell to meet Robert for their first date. Lemar and Robert then left Slidell and went to the 4100 block of Peters Road in Harvey, where Lemar told Robert that a family member of hers was broken down on the side of the road. When they arrived, Callaway robbed Robert, investigators said.
Investigators said the couple then shot and killed Robert, dumped his body and stole his SUV.
Lafourche Parish investigators found the SUV Saturday morning, burned in a sugar cane field 2 miles south of Thibodaux on Highway 308. They said in the cane field they also found a cup from a convenience store, where they were able to track down video evidence of Callaway.
That's when Houma Police were called in to serve an arrest warrant for Lemar and Callaway at the Daniel Turner trailer park in Houma.
Investigators said Lemar and Callaway went at great lengths to hide their identities, and detectives don't believe Robert knew either of his attackers before he was killed.
Investigators are now trying to determine if Lemar and Callaway have previously committed similar crimes. They have been booked into the Terrebonne Parish Jail on warrants through the 24th Judicial District Court for second-degree murder and obstruction of justice. Lafourche detectives have obtained warrants for Calloway and Lemar on one count each of simple arson and felony theft.
