Man arrested for murder
A Louisiana man is in custody after allegedly murdering his girlfriend and setting her body on fire.

Brizuela Jose De Jesus Madrid, 39, of Gretna, Louisiana was charged with first degree murder after officials with the Nash County Sheriff's Office discovered a female's body on fire off Lonesome Pine Road in Whitakers. Salem's Fire Department received the initial call of a woods fire on Thursday, February 15.

Joyner said the arrest was made based on evidence that was collected at the scene, which linked the suspect to the incident.

Madrid was jailed without bond.

According to Lt. Pat Joyner with the Sheriff's Office, the name of the suspect has yet to be released pending verification and notification of the victim's family. Joyner added that the woman was believed to be the girlfriend of Madrid.

Sheriff Dick Jenkins said investigators are having trouble locating the victim's family but are working diligently to do so. Until the family is notified and can verify who the victim is, the name won't be released.

"We think we know who she is but we need to verify that we're sure," Jenkins said.
