UPDATE: Iberville Sheriff’s office investigating murder suicide

The Iberville Parish Sheriff’s Office has identified the couple that died in an apparent murder suicide in Plaquemine.

Michael Daigle, 57, and his wife Jodi Daigle, 50, both of Plaquemine, died on Monday, March 21, 2022.

IPSO responded around 3pm to a home on Charles Ory Dr.

Iberville Sheriff Brett Stassi said their preliminary investigation reveals Michael Daigle had been on and off of his Schizophrenia medicine leading up to the incident. Sheriff Stassi added Jodi Daigle had called her sister the day before telling her she was coming to stay with her. However, when she did not show up, the family called the sheriff’s office concerned.

That’s when deputies responded to the home and found evidence that Michael Daigle shot & killed his wife before turning the gun on himself.

Sheriff Stassi added it appears the gun used was a hunting rifle.
