‘Dark Minds’ a disappointment to locals

Thank you, Investigation Discovery channel, “Dark Minds” series producers and crime author M. William Phelps for disappointing all of Jeff Davis Parish and pouring salt on open wounds.

Since word broke late last week that the national television series “Dark Minds,” which follows Phelps as he looks into cases thought to be connected to serial killers, all of Jennings and Jeff Davis Parish has been abuzz. What would the show find? Could new information finally lead to a killer or killers? It seemed hope was building in all of us that someone with no connections to this area could offer a new perspective or even information on the unsolved murders of eight local women.

Well, if you missed last night’s episodes, you missed nothing that hasn’t been rehashed over and over in the media, on the internet and through the local rumor mill.

For “Dark Minds,” of course, the local murders are a sensational mystery that the rest of the nation has yet to be exposed to. But for those of us here, last night’s show was a major let down and frustrating to those who personally loved and had relationships with the victims; anyone hoping to gain answers gained nothing.

At least we know that the desire to see these murders solved goes much further than the parish line.  But that does nothing to ease the pain from the immense loss of life that has been suffered by these eight murder victims and their loved ones.
