Louisiana family rescues bloodied, kidnapped Family Member from ex-Boyfriend and Kills the perpetrator

Marcus Arceneaux carries his wounded niece, Bethany Arceneaux, to a vehicle  after she was rescued from a vacant house in Duson, La.


A Louisiana family decided to take justice into their own hands on Friday — and it was all captured on camera.

Marcus Arceneaux cradled his frightened niece, Bethany Arceneaux, in his  arms as he tenderly placed her in a car. Blood ran down Bethany’s face and she  held a cloth to her neck to stem the flow. But she was home. She was safe.



And her family had reportedly killed her torturer. Bethany’s two-day ordeal began on Wednesday evening when her ex-boyfriend, Scott Thomas, took her  hostage. The 29-year-old from Duson was the mother of his child and allegedly a  victim of years of domestic abuse at his hands.

By the time police sent a SWAT team inside the home, Thomas was already  dead.

As of now, no charges have been pressed against anyone in the Arceneaux  family. Judice confirmed that initial investigations into the incident revealed  that the Arceneauxs were acting in defense of the victim.

Bethany’s brothers, Ryan Arceneaux and Kaylyn Alfred, told The Advertiser that they were part of the woman’s rescue  team.

“We went and got her in that house. We kicked doors down. It was like a  movie unfolding,” Ryan said. “If we wouldn’t have done what we did, she would  have been dead.”
