I was just about to stop for the day but saw this headline and figured I would share.
Last Tuesday, police were called to the Mayberry Trailer Park by a Hanna Barker who said a man and woman she did not know came to her front door and sprayed her in the face with mace.
Barker said she panicked and ran from the trailer, leaving her 6-month-old son, Levi Ellerbe, behind. When she circled back to her trailer, she found Levi was missing.
Police were in the process of searching for the boy when they were notified about a fire by some nearby railroad tracks. It was there they found the badly burned body of Levi.
The boy was taken to the Natchitoches Regional Medical Center before being airlifted to University Medical Center, where he would die from his injuries.
On Saturday, police made their first arrest. Felicia Marie-Nicole Smith, 25, was taken into custody and charged with first-degree murder and booked into the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center.
I couldn’t find any further information regarding a motive or if there are other suspects.
“The investigation is on-going and no further information will be released at this time,” Louisiana Office of State Fire Marshal said in a statement.
