Metairie woman found dead in bathtub, boyfriend and children sought



Jefferson Parish deputies are looking for a man who allegedly killed his girlfriend and fled the crime scene after abducting his three children early Sunday.

Deputies say 43-year-old Pedro Alberto Monterroso-Navas is suspected of killing his 24-year-old girlfriend, Heidi Monroy. They say he also abducted his three children before fleeing the scene. He faces a second-degree murder charge.

The Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office responded to a medical call in the 4000 block of Durand Street about 3:30 a.m. Two of the couple's children, aged 5 and 8, had gone to a neighbor's house to tell them something was wrong with their mother.
 
They found the woman in a bathtub, with blunt force trauma to the head. She was pronounced dead on the scene.
 
Sheriff Newell Normand says Monterroso-Navas fled the scene with three of his children, a 12-year-old daughter and two sons, aged 4 and 2.
 
The 2-year-old is the biological son of Monroy and Pedro Monterroso-Navas. The 12-year-old and 4-year-old are the biological children of Pedro Monterroso-Navas. The children who had gone to the neighbor's house for help are Monroy's biological children.
 
Normand said the couple reportedly did not own a vehicle, and it wasn't known how Monterroso-Navas escaped with the children.
 
Monterroso-Navas is a Honduran male with brown hair. He was last seen wearing black pants and a blue shirt, and walks with a limp. He also goes by the name Wilson Rigoberto Mina.
 
It was originally thought that Pedro and Monroy were married; however that is not the case. It's believed the two had been living together, and fought often.
 
Anyone with information of any kind about Monterroso-Navas or his children is asked to call the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office at 504-364-5300. Calls can also be made to 911 or Crimestoppers, at 822-1111
