"No one really thinks it's him. He's always been good. He's never done anything that would make anyone mad, like this. He's never put anyone down. He's always been Seth Arceneaux, the person that everyone liked," said one friend.

"I don't think he did anything. I think he's innocent," said another friend.

Meanwhile, investigators maintain an anonymous tip called into the crime stoppers line lead to Arceneaux's arrest.
