Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre reported detectives are investigating a double homicide which occurred at a Larose apartment building on Sunday morning. 41-year-old Nikki Landry (W/F) and 54-year-old Harry Lefort (W/M) of Cut Off were found deceased at Landry’s apartment, each having suffered multiple gunshots wounds. Their bodies were discovered by a member of Landry’s family on Sunday morning.

Investigators responded to the Westside Apartments at 102 West 4th Street after receiving the initial report at around 11:45 a.m. on Sunday, September 22, and spent several hours processing the scene. While a motive has not yet been determined, investigators say they do not believe it to be robbery based on evidence. Detectives say Lefort and Landry were acquaintances.

The victims are being taken to the Jefferson Parish Coroner’s Office for autopsies.
