The Natchitoches Police Department and the Louisiana State Fire Marshal’s Office have worked tirelessly together in order to learn the facts behind this Homicide. The two agencies have worked as one since this investigation’s conception through extremely long days and nights with little to no sleep.

On July 25, 2018, Hannah Barker, W/F, 22 years of age, was charged with Principal to 1st Degree Murder in the killing of her 6 month old baby boy, Levi Ellerbe. Barker was booked into the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center awaiting a 72 hour hearing.

Earlier this week, Natchitoches resident Felicia Marie-Nicole Smith was arrested for 1st Degree Murder in the case. An additional charge is expected to be brought against Smith.

Due to the extremely rapidly growing nature of this investigation, we must continue to restrict the information that is released. Therefore, NO FURTHER INFORMATION SHALL BE RELEASED AT THIS TIME. Thank you for your cooperation.

Approved for release by Chief M. Dove

  1. What is the reason the FBI is not involved in the investigation? With Kidnapping the FBI has jurisdiction. This is a “good ole boy” town …. with such a horrific crime of a Baby… it is especially important that all of those involved are brought to justice…. And Equally important that those who were not involved not be falsely charged.

  2. So sad to hear that this woman did this to her own child. What drove her to make this horrible choice? Addiction makes people do unspeakable things. I’m glad that little boy is in the arms of Jesus now. And many thanks to the dedicated members of Natchitoches Police Department and Louisiana State Fire Marshall’s Office for getting justice for this child.

    This is why we must all be more aware of people around us. If you see something, say something.

  3. we need to skip the trial and set in her sorry butt on Breda St. and set car on fire,so she can feel the pain that poor innocent baby felt.This is no human or mother,straight up drug user…I will be beyond angry if my tax dollars pay for her stay in prison.

  4. I knew from the start she had something to do with it cause the story she told wasn’t sitting right with me I have been sprayed with mace and I couldn’t see nothing I mean nothing feel to the ground cs I couldn’t see a damn thing. I have three kids I laid down and made them so it’s up to me to be a mother because they didn’t ask to be here. If she didn’t want the baby she could have gave him up for adoption it’s plenty of couples who can’t have kids… And for the ones who defended her before the truth really came out pick up ya lip cs I know you just can’t believe it huh well believe it she killed her baby and she gone get what she deserves in prison

    • AGREE—STORY DIDNT ADD UP–YOU SPRAYED (BUT RAN FROM HOUSE) AND NOT FALL BACK INSIDE AND TRY TO SLAM DOOR…

      RIGHT ABOUT THE MACE–AND I HEAR AN HOUR AFTER BEING “SPRAYED” SHE WAS AT HOSPITAL–NOT BURING, FACE NOT RED–NO SIGNS OF BEING SPRAYED WITH MACE—\

      LIES LIES LIES

  5. Thanks and prayers to all that have worked so tirelessly. This horrific crime has touched all residents of Natchitoches along with other cities.
