This investigation found that because of an overcrowding in the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison, arrestees were set free minutes after arrest. Records obtained during this investigation showed that about 332 people were released from custody between the months of May and October. Among these suspects, some were accused of first-degree murder, domestic and sexual battery, and kidnapping.
