Update on Roubdioux Road Death Investigation
2011-11-01

The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office has been investigating the deaths of three people since they were discovered on Friday, October 28, 2011, at approximately 2:43 p.m.  Their bodies were found just outside of their residence in the 300 block of Roubdioux Road, located in northwestern Shelby County.  They have been identified as Phyllis J. Castillo, 78 years of age, Anita M. Castillo, 53 years of age, and Melvin R. Jones, 58 years of age.  Phyllis Castillo was the mother of Anita Castillo and Melvin Jones.  Autopsies have been completed and they revealed that all three died as a result of gunshot wounds and that Melvin Jones’ wounds were apparently self-inflicted.  A gun was recovered at the crime scene.

While Sheriff’s investigators continue to examine all of the evidence in this case, it appears that this was a murder-suicide. 

Sheriff Curry would like to express his deepest sympathy and condolences to the family and friends of the Castillo family, “This is a tragic loss and very difficult set of circumstances to deal with for the family and everyone who knew them.”
