The Red Bayou Talks To The Author Of Murder In The Bayou


red bayou showThis week, Scott and I talk to Author Ethan Brown about his new book, Murder In The Bayou. Brown discusses what went into writing the book and what his investigation discovered. He talks about the 8 prostitutes known as the “Jeff Davis 8,” and what he thinks happened. Brown also talks about how his investigation crossed over into the world of politics when Charles Boustany and his former employee Martin Guillory’s names came up.

We ask Brown about the reaction to the book both personally and professionally. What accusations have been thrown at Brown as a result of the book? How are the people of Jennings responding to the story being put on such a large stage? etc.
Since Murder In The Bayou is not Brown’s first dive into true crime in Louisiana, we also talk a little about Shake The Devil Off, a book Brown wrote about a gruesome murder/suicide in post Katrina New Orleans.
