Lake Charles Police have named a suspect in the murders of two women found dead on North Prater Street Wednesday morning.

Police are now looking for 52-year-old Mark Wayne Thibodeaux, he's wanted on two counts of 2nd degree murder.

Police have also identified the two victims as 54-year-old Bridgette Pryor who lived at the home on 1110 North Prater Street, and 25-year-old Carla Ladoux of Lake Charles.

Investigators are not saying what lead to the killings or why they suspect Thibodeaux in the deaths of the two women found around 5:30am.

Authorities spent the day looking for evidence in a half-block radius of the home. Detectives had also served search warrants for homes near the crime scenes.
