Pearl River Man Charged With Fatal Stabbing

Slidell Police responded to a domestic related incident on Pine Tree Street Sunday (July 30, 2017) evening and found Douglas Evans (30) of Lacombe suffering from multiple stab wounds. Evans later died at a local hospital. 
Police report that, earlier in the evening, Joseph Thibodeaux (25) of Pearl River was arguing with his fiancĂ©, which escalated to the point of Thibodeaux grabbing a knife. Thibodeaux began threatening to stab multiple people inside of the house. Douglas Evans, the uncle of Thibodeaux’s fiancĂ©, intervened and attempted to deescalate the situation. Thibodeaux turned on Evans and began stabbing him multiple times. Thibodeaux then fled the residence in a vehicle, but was caught later Sunday evening by the Jones County Sheriff’s Office in Mississippi.
Thibodeaux waived extradition and was transported back to Slidell, where he now faces a Second Degree Murder charge.
