    Baton Rouge man accused of killing, dismembering parents during Thanksgiving visit

    BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A Baton Rouge man has been arrested for allegedly murdering his parents during his Thanksgiving visit to their home in Tennessee. The bodies were dismembered and some of the remains were placed in an acid-based solution, authorities said.

    The victims have twin daughters who were given details of their parents death by deputies earlier Wednesday, Knoxville television station WBIR-TV reported.

    Officials with the Knox County Sheriff’s Office held a press conference Wednesday to announce the grisly details of the murder investigation. They say Joel Michael Guy Jr., 29, is accused of murdering his parents, Lisa and Joel Guy Sr., dismembering their bodies, and then dissolving them in an acidic chemical.

    “Both (victims) suffered multiple, vicious stab wounds as well as dismemberment,” said Knoxville County Sheriff’s Major Michael MacLean. MacLean said remains were found throughout the house, WBIR-TV reported.

    The suspect’s need for money might have led to the killings, authorities speculated. However, authorities also said they are checking to see if the couple had a life insurance policy but they do not believe they do, Knoxville television station WBIR-TV reported.

    Investigators say Guy traveled on Thanksgiving to his parents’ home in Knoxville. They believe the murders happened sometime between Friday and Saturday.

    Guy, a college student, was arrested Tuesday at his apartment in Baton Rouge on Nicholson Drive. He is charged with two counts of first-degree murder and was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison. The Knox

    County Sheriff's Office reports Joel Guy, Jr. was not employed.

    “It would be described as horrific – a very gruesome crime scene,” MacLean said. “There’s a motivation behind it, but in this case we don’t know what it is,” he said.

    Authorities believe Joel Guy might have stayed in the house for a while after the deaths, the station reported.

    Police were called to the Knoxville home after the suspect’s mother did not show up for work.

    Joel Guy was arrested in the parking lot of his Baton Rouge apartment complex Tuesday as he was trying to get into his 2006 Hyundai Sonata, WBIR-TV reported.

    Baton Rouge man accused of dismembering parents in Tennessee gets new hearing date following transport glitch

    By Joe Gyan, Jr.
    The Advocate

    A 28-year-old Baton Rouge man accused of stabbing and dismembering his parents in their Tennessee home over the Thanksgiving weekend will spend the Christmas and New Year's holidays at East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.

    Joel Michael Guy Jr. was previously scheduled to appear Friday in a Baton Rouge courtroom for an extradition hearing, but the hearing was pushed back to Jan. 6 after Guy's name was inadvertently left off Friday's jail transport list.

    Ad hoc Judge Bruce Bennett set the new date after one of Guy's court-appointed attorneys, Lyn Legier, told the judge Guy was not brought to the 19th Judicial District Courthouse.

    East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney said afterward he expects the extradition hearing to take place Jan. 6 because officials in Tennessee have indicated their paperwork will be completed very soon.

    Guy is accused of trying to dissolve the remains of his parents — Joel Guy Sr., 61, and Lisa Guy, 55 — with a homemade acid-based solution, the Knox County Sheriff's Office in Tennessee has said.

    Joel Guy Jr., who graduated in 2006 from the Louisiana School for Math, Science, and the Arts in Natchitoches and previously attended Hahnville High School, was living in a Nicholson Drive apartment complex in Baton Rouge when he was arrested Nov. 29.

    Authorities believe Guy's parents were killed sometime between Nov. 25 — the day after Thanksgiving — and midday on Nov. 26. Guy is believed to have spent at least one night in their Tennessee home after they were dismembered, officials have said.

    Guy's parents, who had been paying many of their son's bills while he lived in Baton Rouge, were in the process of encouraging him to support himself and planned on talking to him over Thanksgiving about cutting off some of their financial support, according to Knox County sheriff's officials.

    Guy is expected to face first-degree murder charges in Tennessee once he is returned to that state.

    BR man suspected in Tennessee parents' dismembering ordered sent back to that state

    By Joe Gyan, Jr.
    The Advocate

    The 28-year-old Baton Rouge man suspected in the Thanksgiving weekend stabbing and dismembering of his parents in their Tennessee home was ordered sent back to Knoxville on Friday to face murder charges there.

    Ad hoc 19th Judicial District Judge Bruce Bennett issued the order after Joel Michael Guy Jr. softly confirmed his identity. The judge also found that extradition papers signed by the governors of Louisiana and Tennessee were in proper order.

    East Baton Rouge Parish Assistant District Attorney John Russell cited the possibility of inclement weather and asked for Guy's expedited release from Parish Prison so that two Knox County sheriff's officials, who were in the courtroom, could escort Guy back to Knoxville on Friday. Guy has been held at the prison since his Nov. 29 arrest in Baton Rouge.

    Lindsay Blouin, one of Guy's court-appointed attorneys in Baton Rouge, informed Bennett that Guy invoked his right to remain silent and did not wish to be questioned on his way back to Tennessee.

    Bennett advised the two Knox County sheriff's officials that they were not to question Guy on the drive back to Knoxville. The judge, however, said he could not halt Guy from making any spontaneous statements during his transport.

    Guy is accused of killing his parents, Joel Guy Sr., 61, and Lisa Guy, 55, in their Knoxville home sometime between Nov. 25, the day after Thanksgiving, and midday on Nov. 26.

    He also is accused of trying to dissolve their remains in a homemade acid-based solution.
