Jeff Davis 8

On May 20th, 2005, the body of 28 year old Loretta Lynn Lewis was retrieved from the Grand Marais Canal. Her body had started the decomposition process, but she had no obvious visible wounds, aside from an area of bleeding from the scalp. She was a known sex worker in the Jefferson Davis Parish in Louisiana. Loretta would be the first of eight women that were discovered dead, who would later become known as the Jeff Davis 8. 


These women are: Ernestine Marie Daniels Patterson, 30; Kristen Gary Lopez, 21; Whitnei Dubois, 26; Laconia “Muggy” Brown, 23; Crystal Shay Benoit Zeno, 24; Brittney Gary, 17; and Necole Guillory, 26.


Ernestine Patterson and Laconia Brown both had their throats slit, but all of the other victims were too advanced in their state of decomposition to determine the cause of death. The most common theory for the cause of death is asphyxiation.
