Warrant reveals new details in Reserve couple double homicide investigation

In March of this year, FOX 8 shot exclusive video of homicide detectives searching a boarded-up house in New Orleans east.

That search has now been linked to the investigation into the deaths of a Reserve couple.

A warrant obtained by FOX 8 reveals that investigators were looking for any trace of evidence linked to the murders of Kenneth and Lakeitha Joseph.

The couple disappeared on Feb. 19. Their bodies were found weeks apart in the Intracoastal Waterway. Both were bound by their feet with blue nylon rope and tied to a 30-pound kettle bell to weigh the bodies down.

"What type of human could sleep at night and live with themselves knowing that they did that to two human beings? To my knowledge, they threw them in the water alive," says Joshua Jones.

Federal and local authorities arrested convicted felon Frank Mike Jr. earlier this week. Right now he is only accused of transporting the couple's stolen van across state lines.

Authorities found the van in a suburb of Atlanta eight days after the couple went missing. Court documents revealed blood evidence was found inside of the vehicle.

According to the recent search warrant, police have reason to believe that Mike had at least one of the Joseph's bodies inside the New Orleans East home in the 8400 block of Beechwood Court. The warrant allowed police to search for hair, blood, DNA and fibers inside the home and garage.

Mike has ties to the house, but it's unclear if he actually owns it.

According to the Orleans Parish Assessor's Office, the house is owned by Christopher Dorsey, but the mailing address is a P.O. Box registered to Mike and Mike Properties.

The warrant states that Frank Mike Jr. frequented the Beechwood property and told neighbors he purchased it at an auction.

While it's unclear exactly what evidence was found when police executed the search warrant, Chief Ronal Serpas says the investigation is far from over.
