But the slain women were not the targets, according to the police, and the suspected killers were after Brittany’s daughter.
Investigators soon centered on Brittany’s 35-year-old brother, Beaux Cormier, a convicted sex offender accused of raping his niece, who the sheriff said was due to testify against him.
Since then, cops have accused Beaux of hiring two friends to kill the girl, even helping to carry out surveillance as he allegedly joined them in the “unsuccessful” first scheduled hit.
The sheriff added, “Through the investigation, it was learned that the rape arrest resulted in Beaux Cormier soliciting the assistance of his friends, Andrew Eskine, 25, and Dalvin Wilson, 22, to murder the victim of the rape,”
“It was at this time, Dalvin and Andrew were both financially compensated to carry out the murder.”
Andrew Eskine was out of town at work at the time of the murders, but facilitated the vehicle and the plot to carry out the murders, the sheriff said.
When the killers hit, while her daughter and stepdaughter hid in a closet, Brittany Cormier pretended to be their target, Soignet told The Advocate.
Soignet said at Monday’s press conference, “Brittany Cormier [told] the shooter she’s the rape victim, accepting her fate to save the life of the actual victim,”
“They were asking for the victim and she said it was her.” While attempting to battle the gunman, Nettleton was shot dead, he said.
Samantha LeMaire, a friend who told her that Cormier was “like a sister,” told the Advocate that her mother “would do anything for her children.”
She said, “But to this extent? I would have never thought it would ever have come down to this,”
She was talking to her daughter and stepdaughter. The names or ages of the girls were not disclosed. The sheriff said Eskine and Wilson later admitted to being hired for the hit. All three are currently being held on $2 million bails on two first-degree murder charges.
