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.
