Is there a serial killer in Jeff Davis parish?

Nov 17, 2008 | Posted by: pragmatist | Full story: www.2theadvocate.com

A family search party in Jefferson Davis Parish Saturday discovered a body believed to be that of a Jennings teen who has been missing since Nov. 2, authorities said.

Brittney Gary’s family began the search Saturday morning and a member of the search party contacted 911 at around 12:30 p.m. after finding the body, according to a news release from Sheriff Ricky Edwards.

It is the seventh body discovered in rural parts of the parish and the fifth to turn up within a two- to three-mile radius in the last three years. The first three bodies were discovered in canals. The last four bodies have been found along or on rural roadways in the parish. Most were discovered in a decomposed state.

The first six women knew each other or were known to have lived the same high-risk lifestyle involving drugs and in some cases prostitution.

The search Saturday was conducted approximately 1/2 mile south of La. 1126 on Keystone Road.

Tattoos on the body found Saturday are similar to Gary’s tattoos, although the identity has not yet been confirmed, the news release stated.

Teresa Gary, Brittney’s mother, expressed concern last week that her daughter could become the next victim of a possible serial killer in the parish. She declined to comment Sunday.

Brittney Gary has been missing since Nov. 2 when she left her South Doyle Street home between 5:15 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. headed to the nearby Family Dollar Store.

Authorities said a surveillance video shows Brittney Gary making a purchase about that time and then leaving. That was the last time anyone has acknowledged seeing her.

Teresa Gary also was concerned for her daughter’s safety because of Brittney’s connection with four of the other victims.

Brittney was a cousin to Kristen Gary Lopez, 21, who was found March 2007 in a rural canal south of Welsh.

Brittney also knew Crystal Shay Benoit Zeno, 23, who was found in a decomposed state Sept. 11 off Lacour Road in rural Jefferson Davis Parish.

Brittney also was close friends with Laconia Shontel “Muggy” Brown, 23, who was found on a rural road in Jennings on May 12.

And she knew Whitnei Charlene Dubois, 26, who was found on a rural road just south of Jennings.

No, and they never will. This is due to a combination of factors,one of which is law enforcement involvement. The law has traditionally taken the dope it had as a result in I-10 busts and sold it in the community,starting back in the `70's. They will do ANYTHING to protect this endeavor,including silencing people who want the truth known.

Hey Rich, I am a relative of 2 of the victims and also from Jennings. I no longer live there but I agree that it is going to take an outside agency to bring this nonsense to an end. The citizens of Jennings have nothing to brag about when it comes to the people they rely on to protect them.
Sorry for your loss. There was a murder in Southern Kentucky near the TN-KY border. She went out with someone she met online. tell the local police to check trucker records, truckers coming from the Gatlinburg area.

You're pretty smart. My friend and I think it is a FORMER COP who is running drugs. Can't elaborate, or it could cost me my life. HUGE drug ring from CA, Texas, to Kentucky, international players, heroin!
