LAFAYETTE, La. (KLFY) – Lafayette Police have discovered a connection between the body that was found in a tool box yesterday afternoon and the naked trespasser that was shot and killed Friday on Fanny Street.

Yesterday, the body of Alannah L. Montalvo, 23, of Lafayette, was discovered in a tool box around 4 p.m. in the 300 block of S. Wilderness Trail.

Police say Montalvo was in a relationship with 36-year-old Barrett Farabee II, who was the suspect killed in the 100 block of Fanny Street on Friday.

Farabee is believed to be the person responsible for Montalvo’s death, based on forensic evidence and statements obtained during the course of both investigations, officials say.

On Friday morning, investigators explain Farabee was naked and trespassing when he pulled two guns out of his shoes, threatening the homeowner.

Police say the homeowner shot and killed Farabee after pulling the guns on him a second time.

Anyone with information about the death of Alannah L. Montalvo is encouraged to call Lafayette Police or Crime Stoppers at 232-TIPS.
