    7 young women dead in 3 years and "Jefferson Davis officials wonder if they have serial killer". That's cartoonist material.


    I know the 7 deaths don't automatically mean it's a serial killer but "wondering" should have kicked in long before now.


    AmandaBrown23, It says Brittany had a 5+ block walk from the store to her home. "Blocks" makes me think the area was a populated one....stores and homes etc. Do you know if that's right? Thanks.

    Im pretty sure it was pretty populated. There isnt much open space out in Jennings, its not very big at all. I am so sad to hear that the girl may have been found dead. Her mom was on the news here and it broke my heart. She was crying so hard and she just knew the serial killer got her.

    What really concerns me is that one of this girls family members was murdered by the serial killer, so if someone picked her up obviously she knew them.

    More interesting info from the above link (bolding mine):
    Brittney's cousin, Kristen Elizabeth Gary Lopez, was the third victim, and her best friend, fourth victim LaConia Shontel "Muggy" Brown, died earlier this year.


    A week before Brittney went missing, a serial killer profiler told a private investigator that another girl would be killed before Christmas.


    Every one of the victims is connected to the Gary family in some way, and Teresa Gary said they knew all of them. The second victim, Ernesteine Marie Daniel Patterson, was one of Teresa Gary's employees at Wendy's.


    The family had returned to Jennings less than a week before Brittney's disappearance after living with family in Houston and Lufkin, Texas, for four months. Her daughter had done drugs in the past, Gary said, but was clean while they lived in Texas.

    Here's a link to the census & website for Jennings, a population of 10,986 people with the town of Jennings 10.24 square miles of land and 1,072.61 people per square mile.
    It is a small town.

    Here's the link:

    S. La. deaths raise concerns of serial killer

    http://www.shreveporttimes.com/artic...811160306/1062
    JENNINGS — More than three years ago, Jefferson Davis Parish authorities began investigating the deaths of Jennings women who were known to live illicit lifestyles.

    All the women were in their 20s and had escalated levels of cocaine and alcohol in their bodies when they were found in rural but public areas of the small, poor parish.

    With a seventh body found Saturday that is suspected to be that of the 17-year-old relative of one of the victims, officials are investigating tips but are without a lead suspect. (emphasis added)

    Lengthy article and timeline at link.

    Very interesting that all the victims tie back to this one family. Any matching cases in Lufkin Texas in the last four months?

    It's about time LE has "decided" there is a serial killer!

    "All the women were in their 20s and had escalated levels of cocaine and alcohol in their bodies when they were found in rural but public areas of the small, poor parish."
    http://www.shreveporttimes.com/artic...811160306/1062

    I wonder if the killer watched their daily habits and would strike after they had got high.

    Been thinking along those lines also. Between the friends/relative murdered and her mother saying "She was scared, she was like you don't know who you can trust anymore, they can be your friend. You just never know,".....it doesn't seem like she'd hop in any ole car.

    In Jennings 11/2 the weather was clear, sunset was at 5:22PM with twilight ending at 5:47PM. According to the video Brittany left the store around 5:30 to walk 5 blocks to her home. Darkness is just setting in, don't know if there's street lights or not. The walk from store to home was simple....like an upside down L...no parks, alleys etc. Walk time is estimated @ around 10 mins. And Google map shows S Doyle as a populated steet.

    Does make one wonder.


    ETA Was thinking car...wouldn't have to be...wondering if any "trusted" individual lived between store and home?

    "It was a feeling we had," said Gary's uncle, Butch Gary. He organized the search parties and combed rural central-Jefferson Davis Parish, where the six other women were found..."
    "Authorities searched over the same area the family has searched with infra-red cameras and came up empty, meaning Brittney's body might not have been there long before searchers found it."

    http://www.thetowntalk.com/article/2...WS01/811160323


    In the location of victims map/post 16, bodies 1, 2, 4, 5 & 6 are kind of clustered directly south of Jennings & and range from 1+ miles (5) to 5+ miles (4) from S Doyle St. The closest body (5) was the one doused in bleach and left in the road by the police shooting range.

    Brittany (7) is 9+miles and her cousin is (3) is 16 miles from S Doyle St. Both are to the SW of Jennings.

    Kind of a separation from the rest.....perhaps intentional?

    Also no bodies were found in 2006.


    From kplctv:

    "I can tell you that we are investigating some leads and that we do have a short list of persons of interest and that we're working on the case day and night," said Mallett.

    Also working the case is the FBI. Teresa was questioned by them on Friday and says they're not counting anyone out in Brittney's disappearance.

    "In the end, they need me to take a lie detector test to rule all that out and I don't have a problem with that at all, but it hurts that they would think that, but I guess it's their job," said Teresa.

    http://www.kplctv.com/Global/story.a...2&nav=0nqxHmI6

    Not thinking it's Teresa but do wonder if all family members will be as obliging re test.

    I think they should also take into account while it could be family...it could also be a policeman or someone who works closely with them on these cases. The body being found on the way to the police shooting range is a huge clue, imo.

    I wasn't aware of these cases and it is very disturbing to see the inability to close in on a perp when you have so many in a small cluster who are related in some way.

    This case is disturbing in that it's in such a small town, similar mo (IMO), and what should be a small # of possible suspects. This reminds me of years ago when I lived in the Pacific Northwest and periodically we'd hear about one, two, or three bodies found along the Green River. Then nothing and years went by and suddenly.

    It's like the person doing it KNOWS that no one will investigate this fully because of the 'life style' of the victims and the 'lack' of clues, ie dna etc.

    IMHO, the FBI needs to look at this from the OUTSIDE-IN, leaving NO ONE, who lives in the area, out as a suspect.

    There's clues here. LOTS of clues.

    From May of 2007:

    51-year-old Frankie Richard and 22-year-old Hannah Conner, both of Jennings, were booked Wednesday on second degree murder charges.
    This arrest is connected to the murder of Kristen Gary Lopez.
    Deputies say Lopez's nude body was found in a rural area of the parish in March of 2007.
    The investigation into her death did not lead to any arrests until now.
    Investigators say the names of the two suspects, whom are uncle and niece, have come up often in this investigation.

    . . . Sheriff Edwards is now saying that Conner may also be connected to three other murders dating back two years.
    http://www.klfy.com/Global/story.asp?S=6527079

    I wonder what happened with this?

    And also from May of 2007
    http://www.klfy.com/Global/story.asp?S=6568824
    There is new information on the homicide investigation of Kristen Gary Lopez.
    Investigators have made another arrest. 31-year-old Tracee Chaisson of Jennings, has been booked into the Jennings jail, charged with accessory after the fact.
    Chaisson was interviewed on several occasions and was the person who reported Lopez missing.



    Chaisson is the last name of one of the victims, right? But not the one she's been arrested about. I wonder how they're related? Also, this Tracee Chaisson got married this May to Dennis Egelston, Jr. http://www.jenningsdailynews.net/weds.php?id=32

    So are the uncle and niece in any way related to the victims? I know the article just mentions they were in the drug ring.
