12. Blood on the Bayou

Blood on the Bayou

It was July 1997, when 19-year-old David Mitchell's body was found
near Hahnville, Louisana. Six months later in December 1997,
the body of 20-year-old Gary Pierre was found in St. Charles Parish
followed by the discovery of the body of 38-year-old Larry Ranson
in July 1998. Young men were being murdered at an alarming rate
in and around the party capital of the south. The victimology was
telling the police that these young men were connected but it also
told them that their greatest fear was about to be confirmed. There
was a serial killer on the loose and he was just getting started.
Join us as we discuss the Bayou Blue strangler on this episode
of Our True Crime Podcast.
