24-year-old Jacqueline Beadle dropped her young son off at her mother's home on Friday. That was the last time Beadle's mom saw her alive.

"The mother, as well as other family members, had not heard from her since. And that was also the case with Karyl, the second victim," says BCPD Spokesperson Mark Natale.

The second victim has been identifed as 26-year-old Karyl Ann Cox, Beadle's roommate and friend.

Both were found shot to death inside their home on Bragg Street in Bossier City on Mother's Day morning, and both leave behind young children.

The killer remains on the loose.

"We don't have any suspect information that we can pass along at this point, but we are asking for information from the public," Natale says.

But neighbors say they have little doubt about who murdered the two women, and all signs point to domestic violence.

Nearby residents wouldn't go on camera for their own safety, but say an ex-boyfriend of one of the women was angry after their break-up.

Neighbors even say the man was spotted near the home early Sunday morning.

"We don't have multiple homicides that often here in Bossier City but we treat all our homicides the same, this is a priority for our Violent Crimes Detectives," says Natale.

Police say it could take several days to fully process the scene.

And while those neighbors say the crime tape is a chilling reminder of what happened inside that home, they want as much evidence gathered as possible to get the killer off the streets.

BCPD is offering a $1000 reward for information that leads to an arrest(s). Bossier Crime Stoppers can be contacted by calling (318) 424-4100 or via an anonymous tip through their website.
