‘Jennings 8’ focus of 4-part weekend series
A four-part series focusing on the unsolved deaths of eight Jennings women that took place from 2005 through 2009 will air the weekend of June 15 and 16.
“Death on the Bayou: The Jennings 8,” an Investigation Discovery (ID) Channel series, will air in four one-hour segments over those two nights.
While the causes of death were varied — some with their throats slashed while many were too decomposed to determine — all were connected to one another, often seen with the same people in their final hours, according to Director of Publicity Debbie Sullivan.
“With few suspects charged, the unsolved cases remain a source of fear and frustration in the community,” said Sullivan. “Now tired of waiting for justice, one victim’s family takes us deep inside their search for answers, revealing the dark underbelly of a small southern town riddled by drug use, violence and allegations of a major cover-up.”
The series will air from 9 to 11 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
“With exclusive access to the family of one of the slain women, Whitnei Dubois, this special follows her niece, Brittany Jones, and her sister, Taylor Dubois, as the two uncover shocking new information in an attempt to understand what happened to Whitnei,” Sullivan explained.
With interviews from family members of the victims, local law enforcement officials, previously apprehended suspects and more, this cast of unforgettable characters weaves a raw and authentic portrait of a world in which family bonds and long-buried secrets hold the answer to the question that haunts this community: Who killed the Jennings 8?”
