JDSO: No connection between murder suspect, parish cases

By SHEILA SMITH

The Jeff Davis Sheriff’s Office (JDSO) does not believe a murder suspect currently behind bars in California is connected to the unsolved killings of eight local women.

Monday, the Associated Press reported that Samuel Little, 72, who is currently awaiting trial for the murders of three women in Los Angeles, is also being looked at as a suspect in cold cases across the country, including Louisiana. Some press reports claimed the JDSO was also looking at Little as a possible suspect in the unsolved murders of eight parish women, including Loretta Lynn Chaisson Lewis, Ernestine Marie Daniels Patterson, Kristen Elizabeth Gary Lopez, Whitnei Charlene Dubois, LaConia Shontel “Muggy” Brown, Crystal Shay Benoit Zeno, Brittany Ann Gary, and Necole Jean Guillory. All were found in southern or eastern Jeff Davis Parish with the exception of Guillory, who was discovered along Interstate 10 south of Egan in Acadia Parish, between 2005 and 2009. To date, no one has been convicted in any of the murders.
