Crime Scene

carver crime sceneNew Llano Police Department was called to the scene at approximately 11:31pm, in response to a call by Barbara’s mother, who found both Alicia and Barbara severely beaten in a bedroom. She screamed for her boyfriend who was asleep in a separate room, and didn’t wake up during the commission of the crime. He was cooperative with the investigation, and soon ruled out as a suspect.4

Alicia suffered “horrific injuries to her face and skull,” and was pronounced dead at the scene. Cause of death was ruled as blunt force injuries to the head. Barbara also had acute traumatic head injuries, but made a full recovery.5

Detectives immediately began interviewing witnesses and associates of the two victims,6 and briefly placed Barbara in protective custody during her hospital stay and after discharge while they hunted the killer.7 Unfortunately, Barbara was unable to recall the incident or attacker’s identity.8

The scene was later described by responders as “one of the most brutal ever witnessed by many law enforcement officers in Vernon Parish.”9
