For over a year, the Thibodaux Police Department’s Criminal Investigations Division has been investigating a homicide that took the life of Dequan Sullivan in December of 2019.
Yesterday, March 17, 2021, the criminal investigation led Detectives to securing warrants on Joshua Birdis, Brennan Mitchell Jr. and Wilfred Mitchell. It was learned that all three suspects were currently incarcerated at neighboring jurisdiction facilities on other homicide related charges. The neighboring jurisdictions were notified of the active warrants obtained pertaining to the 2019 Thibodaux Homicide, at which time all three suspects were later transferred from their facilities to the Lafourche Parish Correctional Complex, where they remain on a $1,000,000.00 bond per suspect. At this time, a motive in this case is not being released, due to pending court proceedings.
Chief Zeringue would like to commend the men and women of the Thibodaux Police Department and all assisting agencies who had a part in this lengthy investigation and apprehension.
