Kidnapping leads to homicide

Baby Kidnapped


The Natchitoches Police Department received a 911 call July 17 at 9:10 pm in reference to a 6 month old baby being taken from a residence in Mayberry Trailer Park. Officers arrived and spoke with the mother of the child who advised that two unknown subjects came to her trailer and began beating on her door. She stated upon opening the door she was sprayed in the face with a substance she believed to be mace. She immediately fled the residence to get away from the attackers and upon circling back discovered the baby missing.

Officers began immediately searching the area and called in additional officers from the Natchitoches Police Department, Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s 0ffice, Louisiana State Police and Northwestern State University Police Department. Natchitoches Fire Department was called to the scene to check the mother out.

At approximately 10:20 p.m. NPD received a report of a fire near Breda Ave and upon arrival discovered a baby approximately 6 months of age with obvious burns about his body. The baby was transported to NRMC in critical condition. He was then airlifted to University Health where he later succumbed to his injuries.

This investigation is continuing, further information will be given at a later time.

Approved for release by Chief Dove Date:7/18/18

NOTE: (Not part of the Dove release) The mother’s employer and coworkers have started a go fund me account to show their support.

  1. So two strange men “randomly” go to this trailer and spray this girl in the face with mace and she is able to get away from them? I know if two unknown men showed up at my home beating on the door at night there is absolutely no way in hell that I would open the door. What motive do these men have? Did they just decide that they wanted to take a baby that night? There is more to this story. I feel horrible for the family but mostly I feel bad for that innocent baby. Somebody pissed the wrong people off and this is a drug crazed revenge or mom isn’t being honest. The truth will come out. I really hope I am wrong.

  2. prayers won’t bring this baby back.When they catch these less then
    human killers,we need to kill them.eye for an eye !! any monster who harms a child doesn’t deserve the air they breathe.

  3. I don’t know what happen, so I won’t make assumptions. I’m glad this baby won’t have to grow up in this evil world, don’t get me wrong I am sad at the loss of life. But this world has so many demonic spirits in it. I pray for everyone involved in this because only JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF CAN FIX THIS. AMEN!!

  4. It would be nice to have a description of the perpetrators so more tees could be on the lookout. Why not include a description?

  5. There is no way in hell I would have left that trailer without my baby ..the whole story doesn’t even make sense..that police department better look a little closer to the mother ..sounds fishy to me ..sad sad sad ..

    • She was sprayed in the face with mace this world has enough people in it a mother has lost her child a grandmother has lost her grandbaby we have lost a sweet innocent baby boy this world has enough evil instead of posting purple judgement towards something you know nothing about shouldn’t we all be posting prayer

    • Until you are in the SAME situation – you have no clue as to how you would act !!! Judge not, that ye not be judged. Matthew 7:1 … My suggestion read the rest of the scripture. God Bless you !

  6. Mayberry. Images of a small town on TV from my childhood days. Opie, Andy, and Barney, right? The trailer park is more like “Mahem.” Sadly other problems have been reported there in the past. And this horrific incident is almost a horrible re-creation of a kidnapping and murder on Carver Alley a few years back. A block over on Henry Ave., A child was kidnapped and her body never recovered. Teens have died here in acts of senseless violence, and the depth of ignorance underlying it all is terrifying. How can anyone rationalize such terrible behavior? Our beautiful little historic town is harboring a violent destructive and truly evil element.

  7. are they sure the mom wasn’t in on this ? seems suspicious she would
    just leave the house with baby in it .I would assume you protect the baby
    at all costs.

  8. lets pray to god they find the person or peron’s who did this
    and kill them.What kind of sick S.O.B does this to a child.
    I hope they throw the book at them.
