A Lafayette couple was found shot to death in their home and police say it was a murder suicide.  It happened yesterday afternoon in their home on Lebesque.  We're told 52 year old Joseph Babineaux shot his wife, 52 year old Judith Babineaux, before turning the gun on himself.  The couple's daughter was the one who found them.

"It's definitely out of the ordinary.  I mean, it's not everyday we find two victims dead in a home and their both violent deaths so that makes it somewhat suspicious obviously," says Captain Kip Judice.

A gun, registered to Mr. Babineaux, was found near the bodies.  Police are still investigating.
