WWL-TV investigated the criminal backgrounds of both paid and volunteer coaches of the New Orleans Recreation Department, and found that ten percent of the coaches had names and birthdays that matched those on criminal arrest records. Approximately one year before the investigation started, a coach was murdered on a New Orleans playground in front of his team of 10-year-olds. It turned out that he was a convicted drug felon who was facing more charges at the time of his death.
