TO:                  ALL MEDIA OUTLETS



NAPOLEONVILLE – Assumption Parish Sheriff Leland Falcon reports a homicide / suicide occurred late Tuesday afternoon near Supreme, south of Napoleonville, LA.


At approximately 5:20 p.m., the Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call from a resident off of LA 1011 who indicated a neighbor had just shot someone on a lawn mower.  Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched.


Approximately seven minutes later, On Star contacted the Sheriff’s Office and reported a vehicle crash on LA 1010.


Deputies were dispatched to that area and located a male subject who was deceased with a gunshot wound to the head.


It was quickly determined that both scenes were related.


A preliminary investigation determined that Beau Blanchard, 29, of 406 Highway 1012, Labadieville, LA, was cutting grass at a relative’s home when he was approached by his uncle, Scott G. Cazenave, 49, of 148 Highway 1011, Napoleonville.  There was a brief conversation between Blanchard and Cazenave.  At that time, for reasons undetermined, Cazenave walked off and retrieved a firearm and then returned, shooting and killing Blanchard.


A short time later, Cazenave left the scene in a pick-up truck and shortly thereafter, died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, off of LA 1010.


The investigation is continuing.
