The search for two young sis­ters, Jalie (6) and Erin (4) Brunett, has tak­en a trag­ic turn after their moth­er, Cal­lie Brunett (35), was found mur­dered in their Lor­anger, Louisiana home on Thurs­day morning.

Cal­lie Brunett had been miss­ing for 24 hours before her father dis­cov­ered her body in the bed­room of their mobile home. Police believe her daugh­ters were abduct­ed short­ly before 8:00 am.

Just hours lat­er, author­i­ties trag­i­cal­ly dis­cov­ered Erin’s body in a near­by wood­ed area. Thank­ful­ly, her sis­ter Jalie was found alive near­by. A sus­pect, Daniel Cal­li­han, was appre­hend­ed in Jack­son, Mis­sis­sip­pi, dri­ving the vehi­cle Jalie was found in. Jalie received treat­ment for minor injuries at a local hospital.

“This is a hor­rif­ic and trag­ic sit­u­a­tion,” stat­ed Jack­son Police Chief Joseph Wade, express­ing his deep sad­ness. “This is an inno­cent 4‑year-old child. No one, espe­cial­ly a law enforce­ment offi­cer or par­ent, should ever wit­ness such a tragedy.”

The scene at Cal­lie Brunet­t’s home was described as an “obvi­ous homi­cide” by Tangi­pa­hoa Parish Sher­if­f’s Office Chief Jim­my Travis. He added that “blood was every­where.” A haunt­ing detail emerged when Cal­lie’s moth­er, Deb­bie Smith Brunett, shared that her last com­ment on Cal­lie’s Face­book page was a des­per­ate plea: “CALL ME!!” post­ed on Wednes­day evening.

While the cause of Cal­lie Brunet­t’s mur­der remains undis­closed, author­i­ties are treat­ing it as a homi­cide. Detec­tives were search­ing for a white male in con­nec­tion with a report­ed domes­tic vio­lence inci­dent before the dis­cov­ery of Cal­lie’s body.
