But the nearly four-year long investigation could get wider attention, as information about the deaths will soon be featured the Web site for the national TV show America's Most Wanted.
On Jan. 29, the Jefferson Davis Parish Sheriff's Office and 31st Judicial District Attorney's Office announced their collaboration on establishing the $35,000 cash reward.
Sheriff Ricky Edwards said the concerned citizens are still handing over information to the multi-agency investigative team working to solve the cases, but most of it is more of the same."
MeoW333 - Thanks for the update. Keep us posted if you find an airing date.
Heck yeah..........I would buy that there is possibly more than one killer. I always assumed that this was being looked into as a possibility.
Deputy Paula Guillory, who was suspended without pay last month after officials learned evidence was missing, was fired Thursday by Sheriff Ricky Edwards after a monthlong investigation.
Edwards said no criminal charges have been filed against Guillory, but the investigation is continuing.
Murder documentary to film in LA
"JENNINGS, LA (AP) - A documentary film crew from Switzerland is heading to Jefferson Davis Parish in September to do a film on the unsolved deaths of seven women found dumped in rural parts of the parish during the last four years."
A different article about the filming:
Paul Nixon, of Kodiak Productions, said the film aims to explore the problems Jefferson Davis Parish is facing as a result of the deaths and the effects they have had on residents.
It’s unclear what kind of cooperation he and his partner will receive once they arrive in the largely rural parish, but one hopes the filmmakers will be welcomed.
This will mark the third time the string of seven deaths has sparked outside interest. There was at least one mention on CNN last year and a small write-up appeared on the Web site of “America’s Most Wanted.” The latter — titled “Seven Bodies, And Countless Questions, Plague Louisiana Town” — offers a brief summary."
Jeff Davis Sheriff Ricky Edwards confirms that at 1:30 p.m. the Jennings Police Department received a report of a missing person, Necole Guillory, who had not been seen since Sunday. Authorties tell us Guillory is in her mid to late 20's. By 2 p.m. members of a Task Force investigating the deaths of seven women in Jeff Davis Parish began interviewing the person who had reported the missing person to authoritties. At 2:30, Edwards says, they received word from Acadia Parish that a body had been found. At that point investigators with the task force headed to the scene.
At this point, authorities are stopping short of saying that the victim is Necole Guillory or whether this latest death may be connected to the others in Jeff Davis Parish.
From Lafayette Parish news sources:

There may be an 8th victim.
OMG! Not another one! Poor darling Necole.
This is all too much. These girls are so vulnerable. What is the connection? Where does Necole fit in?
This time, LE can determine the cause of death and maybe there will be some fiber/hair/DNA/ available. I pray that Necole's death will be what puts the noose around this guy's neck.

I was just coming here to post this!
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 the link for the article providing information about the most recent murder, Necole Guillory. She is the eighth victim from Jennings. Here is the link:
There is also a citizen who recently came forth claiming that here family member, killed in 1998, is the 9th victim in the series of murders in the area. The article is short but the video link to the right provides the full story:
Additional general information:
Another link about the most recent victim, Necole Guillory:
JENNINGS — Officials increased the reward from $35,000 to $85,000 for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of a serial killer responsible for the deaths of eight women from Jefferson Davis Parish.
Officials investigating the deaths of eight Jefferson Davis Parish women called the murders the work of a serial killer for the first time Wednesday."
