BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A memorial fund has been set up for a woman and her son, who were found murdered in their Gonzales home. The money collected will help with the funeral expenses.

WAFB-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1mALLfM ) a GoFundMe account (http://www.gofundme.com/8jfyk4 ) has been established to assist the family in paying for funerals for Dewona Green, 40, and her 12-year-old son Ronald Green Jr.

They were shot to death April 17 allegedly by Ronald Green Sr. The Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office says the suspect called someone around 2 a.m. that day and admitted killing his wife and son and planned to jump off a bridge.

Green’s vehicle was found abandoned and still running atop the Veterans Memorial Bridge, over the Mississippi River, in St. John the Baptist Parish. Authorities searched the area by helicopter, boat and foot - but did not find Green.

Authorities said it was possible Green jumped into the river but investigators haven’t ruled out the possibility that Green - who hasn’t been found - is still alive. Green is described as a black male, bald with a thin mustache. Anyone with information on Green’s whereabouts is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 225-344-7867

Investigators said they will pursue all leads until Green is found.

Dewona Green worked for Entergy; Ronald Jr. attended Central Middle School.

When deputies got to the home of Green’s wife and son, they found the front door glass shattered and the two victims dead in a bedroom.

Detectives have secured arrest warrants for Green for two counts of first-degree murder and violation of a restraining order.
