17 Jun Grand Jury Indicts 2nd Person In Thibodaux Murder
Lafourche Parish District Attorney Kristine Russell announced that the District Attorney’s Office
was able to secure its second grand jury indictment for the Thibodaux murder of a Galliano man
and the attempted murder of a Golden Meadow man in October of 2018.
Kevon Southall, a 23 year old from Houma, was indicted on 2nd Degree Murder and Attempted
2nd Degree Murder early Friday morning, June 14th. Tyrick Hills, a 19 year old from Thibodaux,
was the first to be indicted in this case after it was presented to a Lafourche grand jury several
months back. Assistant District Attorney Shaun George presented to the Lafourche Parish Grand
Jury along with 1st Assistant District Attorney Jennifer Richard.
During the course of their investigation, the Thibodaux Police Department secured warrants on
Kevon Southall and placed them into a national database. Southall was then arrested in
Mississippi after a vehicle he was riding in was stopped on a traffic stop. He was extradited to
Thibodaux shortly after.
Kevon Southall’s next court hearing is set for Monday, June 17th. Both Southall and Hills are
being held on bond at the Lafourche Parish Detention Center.
