The two adult victims were discovered in a bedroom on the north end of the trailer. The juvenile, believed to be a 6-year-old boy, was discovered on the west side of the structure.

The Natchitoches Parish Coroner’s Office took custody of the bodies and will determine identifications and causes of death.
