Resource ID: #19723
Subject: Murders
Source: Advocate (Baton Rouge, La.)
Date: July 18-Nov. 24



A string of murders in the Baton Rouge area led to a police search to find a killer, which eventually led to the identification of the presence of a serial killer. The Advocate blazed the trail for investigators, looking at key evidence in extensive interviews with both family and police. The investigation eventually turned up a major flaw in the police department's argument when the police claimed DNA evidence would be checked against state databases... and the Advocate learned there was no database.
