Sulphur homicide investigation, sex offenders and school bus stops, tech camp

Good Monday morning to you! Britney Glaser here with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:

*The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office is still investigating why the body of a Sulphur woman went undiscovered in her home for days. Family members of 66-year-old Pamela Parker say foul play is involved. We'll bring you up to speed on the investigation.

*The national border crisis spills into Southwest Louisiana over the weekend. Find out what protesters are saying about the surge of illegal immigrants and the solution to the problem.

*How would you feel if your children had to wait at a bus stop that was near the homes of sex offenders? We'll talk to a mother who says she isn't comfortable with the bus stop location and compare her concerns with the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office sex offender registry.

*Some local students are getting a jump on technology before the school year begins. Today they will take part in a tech camp. We'll have the details.

Make it a Sunrise day!
