    Here is an update about a documentary currently being shot in Jennings. It is being done by a crew from Switzerland. It's called "Documenting the Jeff Davis Eight".

    Here's the link:

    I hope this gets solved soon. It is very frustrating knowing that with all of the modern technology and such that women from my seemingly small hometown are being murdered so often. It seems until the puzzle gets solved it remains 8 victims and counting. I am thankful for the numerous web forums such as this that are getting the story out there. This particular site has been very helpful in keeping up with the details. More so than the local sources giving updates.

    This is a rediculous story that I find highly suspicious...it's an article entitled "KPLC refuses to turn over video recordings". Turns out a Jennings judge ordered that the footage of interviews with the victims family be handed over. These interviews are from the hour long documentary on the murders. Here's the link:

    In Hunt for Louisiana Serial Killer, Jefferson Davis Parish Police Forced to Give DNA Samples


    <snip>

    LAFAYETTE, La. (CBS/AP) In Louisanna, the hunt for a serial killer believed to have murdered eight women, has turned to an unexpected place - the police themselves.

    In order to quell rumors that a law enforcement officer might be behind the killings that left partially nude victims in strange locations across Jefferson Davis Parish, 60 miles west of Baton Rouge, officers that work for agencies investigating the deaths are having their DNA tested against evidence in the cases.

    Those being tested include members of the Jefferson Davis Parish Sheriff's Office, the Jennings Police Department and other official agencies.

    TEXAS MIST, thank you for the link regarding the article confirming the submission of DNA by Jeff Davis police and other included agencies. The local news, KPLC, only has a tiny paragraph on it that states very little compared to your article. Hopefully it will be updated soon to include full coverage.

    Almost all members of the Jennings Police Department and Jefferson Davis Parish Sheriff’s Office have provided a DNA sample in an effort to allay concerns that a member of law enforcement may be involved in the deaths of eight women there.

    Sheriff Ricky Edwards said they now are wrapping up the process, which began several months ago.

    Edwards said he personally has been swabbed, but declined to comment specifically as to who else has submitted their DNA.

    8 Deaths in a Small Town, and Much Unease
    January 1, 2010


    Melissa Gary, the mother of Ms. Lopez, said she woke up every morning wondering what had happened to her child. When she shows up for work at the truck stop casino by the highway, she says she wonders if she is coming face to face with the killer.

    Or the killer could be a complete stranger. She just does not know. Nobody knows.


    “There’s eight murders in Jeff Davis parish, and not one’s been solved,” Ms. Gary said, breaking down in tears.


    “Something is wrong in this parish,” she said. “Something is wrong in Jeff Davis Parish.”
    The above photo is the location where the body of Kristen Gary Lopez was found.

    Louisiana Police Hunt Elusive Serial Killer
    Mar 4, 2010
    Investigators in southwestern Louisiana have been hunting for a serial killer blamed for the deaths of at least eight women in the past five years.

    Despite the formation of a task force, the involvement of a private investigator and the utilization of a world-renowned criminal profiler, the case remains unsolved and the killer could strike again at any time.

    Some of the victims' family members banded together to hire Kirk Menard, a private investigator from Egan, La.

    Since getting involved in the case, Menard says he has uncovered hundreds of leads and tips, all of which he has turned over to the task force. He has also been secretly videotaping women in the area, in hopes of capturing one of them on film getting into a vehicle with the perpetrator. He said he managed to capture video of Guillory two months before her death, but it 's unclear whether the video contains any evidence.

    Apr 20, 2010


    A new deck of playing cards will be distributed throughout state prisons, with hopes of solving cold case homicides.

    The cards have murder victim's pictures on them, and will be the only playing cards state prisoners will be allowed to use.

    Of the 52 cards, 6 of the victims are from Acadiana. Three of them are from St. Landry Parish, and the others are the first three victim's of the suspected serial killer in Jeff Davis Parish.
