Crackdown on Crime - Annie Mae Guillory Cold Case Murder

By Lee Peck - bio | email

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - "They told me to come and check on her. So I went and got somebody and we came over here. We knocked on the door, she didn't answer, so we left and we went and called the police."

Friends knew something wasn't right when co-worker Annie Mae Guillory didn't show up to work on September 9, 1990. But no one was prepared for what deputies found behind the door of 908 North Simmons Street.

Inside the bedroom lay the body of 58-year-old Guillory, brutally stabbed to death in her head, neck chest and abdomen. Neighbor Lola White couldn't believe it. She told then KPLC reporter Pam Dixon that Guillory kept to herself.

"I never had a complaint at her, you know what I mean she's just nice and quiet and everything you didn't even know she was there," said White.  

At the time of the crime, investigators told us they believe Guillory knew her killer based on the struggle that took place inside and that the the motive didn't appear to be robbery. Still investigators aren't ruling anything out.

"What the motive is for some of these crime, sometimes we don't know that. Maybe they wanted money and she didn't have any and it made them mad. That's certainly no reason to kill someone," said Calcasieu Parish Sheriff Tony Mancuso.  

Like the other 20 or so unsolved cases, the evidence collected from Annie Mae Guillory's crime scene remains in pieces waiting for investigators to solve the puzzle.

'You know the challenge is now is trying to find using the evidence that we have is trying to link that to a suspect," said Sheriff Mancuso. "Again we know it's 19 years but this case will stay open and always be looked at."

No arrests were ever made in this case. Anyone with information is asked to call Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's cold case investigator Ramby Cormier at 494-4523 or Crime Stoppers at 439-2222.

    Tonight, there will be plenty of clouds around, with a few breaks in between. There should not be any rain around us for the night. It will be warm and muggy. Lows tonight are only in the mid 60s. There is also a good chance we will see fog overnight. There is already plenty of fog at the coast, and that should spread further inland overnight. Take caution on the roads in the morning on your commute. Monday should be another dry, but cloudy day.
