Sheriff Tim Soignet of Terrebonne Parish has confirmed the arrest of two individuals linked to the 2018 disappearance and murder of 45-year-old Larondell Esko. Glen Paul Rodriguez, aged 37, and Ashlee Bridget Cantrelle, aged 25, both from Houma, face charges of First-Degree Murder and Obstruction of Justice.

The case reopened in March this year when the Terrebonne Parish Criminal Intelligence Division revisited the earlier investigation and uncovered new information. Through further interviews and technological investigation techniques, Rodriguez and Cantrelle became prime suspects.

Their questioning on March 4 led to a confession to their roles in Esko’s death. The duo has since been detained on murder and obstruction charges, with Rodriguez held on an $805,000 bond and Cantrelle on an $800,000 bond at the Terrebonne Parish Criminal Justice Complex.

A subsequent search initiated on April 5 at a property connected to both suspects uncovered presumed remains of Esko after draining a pond. Further evidence supporting the case was found during a meticulous search by investigators and crime scene experts.

As the investigation continues, more arrests may follow. Updates will be shared as they become available.
