NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

Lafourche Parish deputies believe a double shooting in Thibodaux, believed to be a murder-suicide, claimed the lives of a mother and young daughter. 

Investigators found the bodies of 26-year-old Nakesha Carrere and 5-year-old Abigail Creamer Sunday, July 31st in the 900 block of Burma Road. 

Creamer's father was the one who discovered the scene and called 9-1-1 just before noon. 

Later, detectives found a detailed letter inside the residence which they believe was penned by Carrere.

"This is a tragic incident, and we extend our heartfelt sympathies to the family," said Sheriff Craig Webre. "Investigators are still processing evidence, but we are confident in our determination of a murder-suicide."
