NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — The Orleans Parish Coroner’s office released the final two identities of the people found deceased inside a Fairgrounds area home.
On Tuesday (Jan. 3), the New Orleans Police Department conducted a wellness check on a home in the 1700 block of Gentilly Boulevard, where they discovered three bodies inside. Officers say it appears the individuals had been in the home for days before they were found.
The coroner was able to identify one victim earlier this month as the 50-year-old homeowner, Alonzo Jackson. On Wednesday (Jan 25), the coroner released the identities of 14-year-old Evonna Jackson and 43-year-old Wilmon Jackson.
All deaths have been classified as homicide by gunshot wound, according to the Orleans Parish Coroner’s office.
Neighbors said they called 911 after going weeks without hearing from the Jackson’s, whose family lived in the house for years.
