Suspect in Acadia homicide charged with molestation, violating protective order

A Rayne man is being questioned by Acadia Parish sheriff's deputies in connection with the murder of a 20-year old woman.

KATC has learned that the suspect is Kerry Bertrand. Although Bertrand has been questioned, he has not been charged in connection with the woman's death.

Bertrand's connection to the victim is still unknown.

His last known address is the same home on Victor Road in Rayne where the woman was found dead this afternoon.

Bertrand was booked into the Acadia Parish Jail on one count of molestation of a juvenile and five counts of violation of a protective order.

The victim's identity has not yet been released. An autopsy on her body has been scheduled.

Deputies responded to the Victor Road home just before noon Wednesday after one of the victim's relatives reported the death.

Officials said that, as a precaution, they put Branch Elementary School and Rayne High School on lockdown. Deputies later said that the victim was related to people who were on those campuses.
