LAFAYETTE, LA (KADN) — A community is looking for justice after twenty year old Skylar Credeur of Rayne was drowned in the bathroom of a house on Victor Road. Her step father, Kerry Wayne Bertrand, is a person of interest in the Acadia parish jail. He is currently charged with five counts of violations of a protective order, believed to be for Skylar, her mother, and other children, but Acadia parish sheriffs expect additional charges to come as the investigation continues.
"This is horrible. It's something that is not only disturbing to law enforcement, it's disturbing to the entire community. It seems like Skylar was a young lady loved by many. Just looking at facebook seeing a lot of posts, it's someone that made an impact on a lot of peoples' lives, and she's going to be missed," says Maxine Trahan, Public Information Officer with Acadia Parish Sheriffs Office.
Skylar's family is asking for the public's help. They have set up an account at the local MidSouth Bank hoping for donations from the community to help with the cost of Skylar's burial. The sheriffs office reminds the public that this is a very alive, and ongoing investigation.
