A COLD case that has lain dormant for more than six years could finally see an arrest made this week.
Back in December 2004 Carrie Billeaud's battered body was found in her water well and supply store in New Iberia, LA.
But with few leads the case went cold, until earlier this week when Sheriff Louis Ackal announced that Brian Segura as a person of interest in the case.
The 30-year-old was allegedly a regular at her store, is already in custody on unrelated charges.
Sheriff Ackal told the Daily Iberian:  "It is still an ongoing investigation, we are working with the District Attorney's office here in Iberia Parish on the case."
"Until we (DA) have both agreed on the circumstance on the case file itself, we're not going to make any comments until then."As for Segura, he will appear in court Monday on charges of aggravated kidnapping and armed robbery. Police say he held a woman and her child at knife-point in March, and forced the victim to get money out of an ATM.
Segura also faces attempted first degree murder charges for allegedly taking a jailer hostage using a homemade shank in July. He remains in the Iberia Parish Jail.
