JPSO Trying To Solve Double Death Mystery In Metairie

Jefferson Parish deputies are trying to find out why two men died inside a Metairie apartment.

Initially, the call came in as a murder/suicide.  But upon arriving at the scene Thursday afternoon, they were uncertain of the circumstances surrounding the deaths.

Friends at the scene said the two men were a couple.  They identified them as Milan and Bud Boudreaux.  Jefferson Parish deputies said the men’s names were Morris Williams, 26-years-old, and Akeem Boudreaux, 22.

According to deputies, one of the men’s friends became worried about the pair after she hadn’t heard from them in several days.  After arriving at the apartment complex in the 2200 block of Edenborn Avenue, the friend asked the apartment manager for help.  They were able to see inside the apartment and saw one body in a hallway.  The second man was found dead in the bedroom.

The men’s dog was alive inside the apartment and was taken to the animal shelter.

Friends told WGNO News that the two men had a good relationship free of any serious conflict.

The Jefferson Parish Coroner’s Office said both men had been shot.
