    LA - Ryan Sharpe, possible SK in East Feliciana random shootings, 2017

    "The victim was standing outside*when he was struck by gunfire that came from a passing vehicle.*Witnesses reported seeing a white, four-door sedan.*

    Authorities in East Feliciana Parish say they are stopping short of saying they are searching for a "serial killer"*after the seemingly random shootings of four men within a 25-mile area.

    Authorities say they will remain “open minded” about whether the shootings are indeed related, and*at this point, remain uncertain as to whether or not they are connected.

    The FBI has been contacted for assistance in the case."

    Thanks to whomever cleaned up my post. I admit I always have a hard time finding the "rules" for how to start posts and what to include!


    So, a lot of people in my area are starting to freak out over these. These men were all killed/shot while outside their homes with for no known reason in rural areas. There is speculation, but no assurance by local law enforcement that they are connected as the similarities in the cases are striking. Some posts on facebook have said that there is a common car that has been reported in the area for each of them. What is it about South LA/ Baton Rouge that attracts serial killers?!?!?!

    Thanks for starting the thread rhapsdy definitely keeping an eye on this one, no doubt they're related. One report states a shotgun in the first two and early in the day, and the third a handgun and later in the day.

    I must say.. Seeing all of their pictures together it's a little eerie how much all the victims resemble each other.

    East Feliciana Sheriff forms task force to investigate rural shootings

    http://www.wbrz.com/news/east-felici...ural-shootings

    Sheriff Jeff Travis says a task force of about 20 will operate out of the East Feliciana Parish Jail building while local and federal authorities investigate the shootings. Members of the East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office could be seen among the task force members outside the jail Tuesday morning.

    The announcement comes after the latest shooting occurred Monday morning, leaving 48-year-old Brad DeFranceschi dead near his Clinton home.

    Employee fatally shot outside Louisiana Boy Scout camp

    http://www.shreveporttimes.com/story...amp/749189001/

    Brad DeFranceschi, 48, was shot multiple times about 11:15 a.m. Monday in front of his house on camp property, East Feliciana Parish Sheriff Jeff Travis said at a news conference.

    DeFranceschi is the fourth middle-aged or older white man to be shot since July in the area, but investigators don't know if the shootings are related. The earlier shootings occurred within 25 miles (40 kilometers). Two were fatal.

    The three other men also were shot at their homes or on their property. Those killed were Thomas Bass, 62, on July 8, and Carroll Breeden, 66, on Sept. 19. Buck Hornsby, 47, was wounded Sept. 12, 10 miles (16 kilometers) down Louisiana Highway 63 from DeFranceschi's home.

    The reward for information has been upped to $20k. No one is saying "serial killer" but that move says that to me.

    Deputies responded to the shooting about 11:15 a.m. at 6897 La. 63, just east of Clinton, said East Feliciana Sheriff's Chief Criminal Deputy Greg Phares.

    East Feliciana Sheriff Jeff Travis identified the victim as 48-year-old Brad DeFranceschi. A friend from Boy Scouting said DeFranceschi had worked at Avondale for the last 17 years and lived on the campground.

    A camp ranger of the Boy Scouts of America Avondale Scout Camp in Clinton was fatally shot Monday morning, said Gary Mertz, the CEO/Scout Exec…

    Travis said DeFranceschi was close to the road when he was shot multiple times in front of his home, though he would not clarify if the incident was a drive-by shooting. However, he did indicate that authorities were searching for a small, four-door white car with tinted windows.

    After high speed chase, suspect apprehended and booked on murder charges

    Captured: Clinton man, possibly a serial killer, suspected in four shootings booked into prison

    BY EMMA DISCHER | edischer@theadvocate.com Oct 11, 2017 - 4:07 pm

    [...]

    A 36-year-old Clinton man who led authorities on a chase Wednesday was later captured and confessed during interrogation in the three killings and non-fatal shooting in the past few weeks near the East Feliciana-East Baton Rouge parish line.

    East Baton Rouge Sheriff Sid Gautreaux would not comment on Ryan Sharpe's motive in the shootings or if he knew the man.

    Sharpe, of 14227 Highway 959, Clinton, will be booked in East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on one count of first-degree murder in the death of Carroll Breeden. He will also be booked by the East Feliciana Parish Sheriff's Office on two counts of first-degree murder and one count of attempted first-degree murder.
