DENHAM SPRINGS – A fundraiser July 28 will benefit the family of Beaux Bailey, the local contractor who was slain in a double homicide Sunday in River Ridge Subdivision, south of Denham Springs.

Bailey was shot and killed at his home on the 9000 block of Ridgeway Avenue (off 4-H Club Road). Evidence gathered during the initial stage in the investigate has led detectives to believe the shooting was not part of a random home invasion, according to Livingston parish Sheriff Jason Ard.
The case remains under investigation.
Bailey is survived by a wife and five children.
“Beaux was a great guy … you couldn’t find a better person,” Ballard said. “We want to step up and do whatever we can to help.”
The fundraiser will run from noon-til’, with the Chase Tyler Band set to perform from 3-5 p.m.
The event will also include a cookoff competition for pastalaya, jambalaya and ribs. Plates will sell for $10 each.
