'Very Bad Men' Profiles Ronald Dominique,'The Bayou Strangler'(VIDEO)

"Very Bad Men" told the story of Ronald Dominique, who investigators described as the most prolific serial killer in recent US history. He was also known as "The Bayou Strangler."

Dominique terrorized southern Louisiana, raping and killing at least 23 young men between 1999 and 2006, when he was arrested. After a potential victim escaped, police were able to connect Dominique to the crimes. Still, his crimes are widely unknown.

"It's astounding to me that twenty-three souls could've been violently taken from this earth, and the rest of the world doesn't know about it," said reporter Dee Dee Thurston.

Sheriff Craig Webre described Dominque as an unassuming guy. "He looks like he would be just an odd guy who lives in a trailer by himself and delivers pizza."

Dominique confessed to all 23 known murders and received eight consecutive life sentences behind bars without the chance of parole.

The bizarre case was turned into the 2011 documentary "Bayou Blue: The Serial Killer the Country Ignored."

If there’s one thing the media picks up on, it’s serial killers. But one case nobody wrote about were the killings of Ronald Dominique. Killing 23 men in a ten year period, he might have gotten away with it, if it wasn’t for one of the victims who came forward. Ricky Wallace got away and told his story to the police.
Bayou Blue is a balanced documentary that tells the story of a serial killer through the stories of the families and police, who take us to the places the killings happened. It’s not a sensational story, with the serial killer, Ronald Dominique, as the star of the movie. But his voice is heard throughout the movie through recordings of his statements. Crying during most. But getting calmer and colder as the film progresses.
We meet with the directors Alix Lambert and David McMahon at IDFA, the international documentary festival in Amsterdam. They explain Ronald Dominique didn’t want to talk to them. But the recordings of his statements give him an unique voice in the film.
“We could speculate on his motives and behavior, but it would kind of be disingenuous,” David says.
More important to the story is how there actually wasn’t a story. The country almost obsessed with serial killers, totally ignored the killings of Dominique. Why? It’s a complex and difficult question that runs throughout the documentary. Alix and David explain the Bayou Blue area is almost entirely ignored by the country. Even largely by Louisiana.“Even after the arrest of Dominique, the New York Times said ‘we’re not interested’,” David says. They qualified the serial killings as a regional news story.
What we get to see is a non-sensational story about a forgotten place. Alix and David purposely didn’t use the shocking images from the crime scenes, which they did have. But they take us to the dark, mostly abandoned places, while playing Dominique’s statements in the background. A refreshing and honest take on the genre, that leaves a lot to the imagination.

Ronald “The Bayou Strangler” Dominique (1997-2006)
Number of victims: At least 23
Ronald Dominique was a member of his local Lions Club, and enjoyed calling out the bingo numbers at a senior citizens home on Sunday afternoons. So he was just a normal guy who oh wait he also dressed up like a woman and did Patti LaBelle impersonations at Louisiana gay bars.

Which is still no big deal. The problem was that he also liked to convince men to leave the bars with him and go back to his place for a romantic escapade. He’d always ask them if he could tie them up. If they refused, he’d let them to leave. If they agreed, he’d rape them, murder them, and dump their bodies in a remote swamp.

After he was caught, a guilty plea helped him avoid the death penalty. If you want to pay him a visit, he’s currently locked up in the Louisiana State Penitentiary.

Police nab the "Bayou Strangler" aka the "Bayou Hamburgerler"
They finally caught that serial killer. Local crackheads can now sleep soundly. As can local buffet owners.

An excerpt from Crime Library:
"During two days of police questioning, Dominique confessed to murdering and raping 23 men whose bodies have been found in Terrebonne and surrounding parishes, Larpenter said. All of the bodies showed signs of strangulation, suffocation, or some type of asphyxiation death, and most bore subtle indications of bondage.

Dominique preyed on men who were down on their luck and in need of money, investigators said at a Monday press conference. Many of his victims were homeless, jobless, and had no means of transportation other than shoe leather or peddle power. Many of the victims were homosexual, as was Dominique."

Being from LA, it isn't that surprising. Many down there are into some sick twisted stuff. In my own city, a grown man I believe in his 30's or so brutally raped a 6 year old girl almost killing her from it. Cops got him....only after the neighborhood got to him first.

Ronald Joseph Dominique (born January 9, 1964) is an American serial killer from the Bayou Blue area of Houma, Louisiana.[1][2]
Dominique was investigated in late 2006 following a police report by a man who refused to let Dominique tie him up. The final victim, Chris Sutterfield, had died about two months earlier.
Following his arrest on December 1, 2006, Dominique confessed to the rape and murder of at least 23 men over a ten-year period beginning in 1997, in Terrebonne Parish, Lafourche Parish, Iberville Parish and Jefferson Parish in suburban New Orleans.[1][2] In his confession, Dominique, who is reportedly gay, said he frequented area gay bars and targeted men he thought would be willing to have sex for money. He was charged with multiple cases of rape and first-degree murder.[1][2]
On September 23, 2008, Dominique was sentenced to eight life sentences after confessing to raping and killing his male victims over a 10-year period.[3] Dominique pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in a deal to avoid the death penalty.[3] He is incarcerated at the Louisiana State Penitentiary in Angola.[4]

Gay Rape Serial Killer Gets Life
man who raped and murdered eight young men over a 10-year period has been sentenced to eight consecutive life sentences in the US.

Police said Ronald Dominique lured his victims with the promise of sex in exchange for money, or by showing them a picture of a good-looking woman, supposedly his wife, and saying he wanted them to have sex with her.

Once he got them to his house, he would ask to tie them up.

If they refused, he allowed them to leave. If they agreed, he raped and then strangled or suffocated them.

Many of his victims' bodies were found dumped in sugar cane fields, often without shoes, a connection that helped police tie the cases together.

Dominique - from Bayou Blue, a small Cajun settlement about 60 miles south-west of New Orleans - was arrested in December 2006 after the ten-year killing spree.

At the time, authorities said he confessed to raping and murdering about two dozen young men in four Louisiana parishes.

He pleaded guilty to eight murders in a deal that saw him avoid the death penalty and was sentenced to eight consecutive life terms in prison.

"The lives of eight young men were taken from these families by the actions of the defendant," Assistant District Attorney Mark Rhodes said before sentencing.

"He knew nothing about them or their families and he callously killed the victims and left a lifetime of pain as their legacy."

Chris Cunningham, the brother of Kurt Cunningham, one of Dominique's victims, said in court: "I'll miss him to the day I die. I hope hell finds you fast."

Mr Rhodes said: "I told the families of the victims I was confident we could get a guilty verdict on all eight counts (of murder).

"I was confident we could get the death penalty on all eight counts.

"I was also confident it would be tied up in appeals for 12 to 15 years or more."

Very sick. I felt so sorry for that poor little girl. She will be psychologically damaged for life. Not to mention the strong possibility of never being able to bear her own children from that incident smh. Good thing the cops took the neighborhood's side and allowed them to beat him like he sexually beat her. Sick twisted people in this world. I think about my own niece too.

They usually prey on people who they know have limited family contacts, knowing that those people will have few to miss them. I remember one Hungarian killer who was never caught. He would invitte women to his house and kill them. All the women he prayed on had few family contacts.

The green river killer and The vampire of Brooklyn are amongst white serial killers who preyed on whites and blacks also. And of course prostitutes are always vulnerable to perps.

I'm surprised I didn't hear about this one, not much national attention at all involved here?

Here we have someone that would let you go if you refused to be tied up, and yet police were never able to nab him, as they were allegedly investigating his crimes?

I think this went on as long as it did, because there was such little concern about gay men and those from the lower economic rungs.

You NEVER hear of black people doing this sort of thing. White people invented sick devices such as every torture device, the guillotine, the gas chamber, the machine that does lethal injection, the electric chair, the gallows for hanging people, and these sick beasts actually sat around in arenas to watch people get murdered in sick evil ways They LIKE killing people and animals just for fun. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THEM?

Examples:

Smiling white people who have just murdered two black men. There is even a couple on a date.

We have Vlad the Impaler who liked to skewer people on spikes and poles, Jeffrey Dahmer who killed and ate black men, and all over the world they alone do this sick shit for PLEASURE. I was with this white girl who damn near begged me to serve her, and she asked me to choke her while I was banging her, and I got so turned off I lost my hardon and asked her to get dressed and leave.

Most of his victims were black, so I gues that played a role as well.
