Glynn, Louisiana – West Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Deputy Donna Leblanc and her daughter Carli Jo were murdered at their home on Tuesday.

Deputy Donna Leblanc and her daughter were at home in the 14400 block of LA 416 at around 4 PM on Tuesday. “Estranged” neighbor Gregory Phillips armed himself and approached Deputy Leblanc while she was in her carport. A gunfight then erupted between Deputy Leblanc and Phillips.

WAFB reported that Pointe Coupee Parish Sheriff Bud Torres said, “Ms. Leblanc was able to get three rounds off of her pistol and there were multiple rounds shot by Mr. Phillips.”

“She was a veteran officer,” Torres said, “She was one of the first female deputies to work in West Baton Rouge Parish on the road. She was, in my opinion, an outstanding officer and a great human being.”

Phillips killed Deputy Leblanc in the gunfight, and he then murdered the deputy’s 21-year-old daughter, Carli Jo, before killing himself. Deputy Leblanc’s 9-year-old daughter was in the house at the time and she called for help.

Deputy Donna Leblanc was the wife of Louisiana State Trooper Mark Whitmore.

Col. Mike Edmonson, superintendent of Louisiana State Police said, “We’ll give all the resources we’ve got to the sheriff here. My heart is with Sheriff Cazes and his deputy. Of course, the situation here is a horrible situation that you don’t want to see. We’re going to be there with our trooper, the husband and just counsel him through this. Just a horrible, horrible situation and you just don’t expect things like this to occur, but they did, we have to deal with it, get through it and find out exactly what happened and we certainly will.”

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the surviving family of Deputy Leblanc.

Deputy Donna Leblanc, your life mattered.
