Hello, I am hoping to run across a few people who can give me a few details about an incident from November 1989 in Opelousas.

When I was seven, one of my mother's friends lived on a street named Bienville in a neighborhood right between Washington and Opelousas. We were staying with her on a visit from Texas. I remember that it was a Sunday and we were getting ready to go outside and play but my mom wouldn't let us after we had heard some gunshots (sounded like)and pretty soon police and ambulance had come up a few houses down. Of course no one told the kids anything but after eavesdropping a few times I heard that someone had killed his wife and daughter in the house. Some kids the next day were out saying that the man had shot himself in the front yard but I didn't know heads or tails of the situation. I just know that it was after Thanksgiving and we used to play with the boys that lived in that green house and mom's friend knew their family. I think they were Nevills if I recall correctly. Hopefully someone can help me piece together what I don't know. Any help would really be appreciated.
