LCPD working to get answers for victims' families


There is a lot of work on law enforcement's end with all three weekend homicides within 48 hours of one another.

Lake Charles Police, along with other agencies, had an unfortunate busy weekend but will continue investigating each homicide until they have all the answers, and until justice is served to the families who lost their loved ones.

"We do what we got to do. This is what we do," Chief of Police Don Dixon said. 

Dixon said the number one thing is to investigate the situation and bring answers to the families.

"Let me tell you, we take every one of them (the cases) just as equally serious. We have an obligation to bring closure to the families of these victims. We will do that no matter how long it takes, no matter what we got to do, no matter where we got to travel," Dixon said. 

"We will do our best to bring closure to the families. They deserve that," he continued.

Dixon said it's tough as chief to have to break the news to families, and especially having to do it three times in one weekend.

"There's no easy way of doing it and what makes us tick is the fact we do bring closure to them and I promise you, we'll give 100 percent to bring closure," he said.

Arrests have been made in two of the cases, but as to a motive or reason why these murders took place, Dixon said he hopes to get down to the bottom of it.
