CPSO still investigating July murder in Quailridge Mobile Estate Park

CALCASIEU PARISH, LA (KPLC) -

On July 29, Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office deputies responded to a call in Quailridge Mobile Estate Park off of East Gauthier Road. When they got there, they found 38-year-old Raymona Lisa Gilmore dead inside.

"In July, we had a person of interest that was in jail, and that person is still incarcerated," said Sheriff Tony Mancuso.

Authorities say the person of interest is in jail for unrelated charges, but now, almost two months later, murder charges have not been filed.

"We kind of move cautiously, especially when we know that we feel that the public has no immediate danger to them at this time," Mancuso said. "Our main concern is not just making an arrest, it's making sure the district attorney has enough to prosecute."

Mancuso said the processing of evidence has slowed the process down.

"We had some bank records that I do think we've received now, maybe we haven't finished going through and tying up some lose ends," Mancuso said.

The CPSO crime lab is also moving locations. Mancuso said that has also caused a hold up in the processing of DNA evidence from the scene. But he said as soon as the move is made, they hope to wrap up the investigation.

"We have to look at all aspects of the case," said Mancuso. "Are we looking at the right person? have we exhausted all other avenues? all those things come into play. The investigators in any type of homicide, or major case, they have to look at all aspects of the case. What evidence do we have? how does it tie that person into the case? Are there any holes in there that would give that person the benefit of the doubt? I think we just tried to exhaust all that."

KPLC will keep you updated as the CPSO moves forward with their investigation.

    A few showers possible this afternoonA few showers possible this afternoon

    For today, we will have a few small pop up showers in the afternoon. Rain chances are at only 20%, so not everyone will see rain. Any rain we do get, will not last long. There will be plenty of passing clouds, but that won’t stop the heat. Highs today will be in the low 90s, with heat indices in the mid to upper 90s! Even though fall is officially starting today, it certainly will not feel like it! By tonight, we will keep the rain chances low as all showers come to an end.
