TX - Gary Sinegal
Investigators in Louisiana are trying to determine whether a serial murder suspect in Port Arthur is linked to the unsolved murder of a New Iberia business owner
The Daily Iberian reports 62-year-old Carrie Billeaud was found beaten to death last December.
Hebert said there were several aspects of the murders in Port Arthur that are "strikingly similar" to Billeaud`s.
All of the victims were elderly white females, and all were beaten to death. In each case, Hebert told The Daily Iberian, the only thing taken was the victim`s wallet. All of the victims` shoes were found in a room other than where their body was found.
Hebert says detectives are working with the Acadiana Crime Lab as well as officials here to compare DNA samples taken at the Billeaud crime scene to Sinegal.
Hebert said detectives are also trying to determine whether Sinegal was in Louisiana at the time of the killing. He said Sinegal has family members in the state, but none in the Teche Area.

Sinegal Sentenced to Life in Prison
“I would really like to know why you tried to kill me,” Choate, the only survivor of an April 21, 2005 crime spree that claimed the lives of two elderly Port Arthur women, asked admitted killer Gary Sinegal Monday in Judge John Stevens’ courtroom.
Sinegal, 43, pleaded guilty to capital murder charges on Feb. 22. He was sentenced to life in prison for the murders of Louise Tamplin, 81, and Margie Gafford, 86, on Monday.
As it turns out, Sinegal was not responsible for the 2004 murder of Carrie Billeaud, and just last month the New Iberia Sheriff's Office announced a new lead and a person of interest in the case.

Possible Lead in 7 Year Cold Case
An arrest could be made soon in the seven year murder investigation of 62-year-old Carrie Billeaud. The New Iberia Sheriff's Office confirms it has a person of interest, and have presented its case to the District Attorney's Office. But as of Thursday, Sheriff Louis Ackal said this is still an ongoing investigation.
Billeaud was found beaten to death inside her water well and pool supply store in New Iberia. With few leads, the case went cold.__________________________________
