Between 2005 and 2009, the bodies of eight women were discovered around the murky canals and crawfish ponds of Jennings, Louisiana, a bayou town of ten thousand in the heart of Jefferson Davis Parish. The women came to be known as the Jeff Davis 8, and they had been among society's most vulnerable - impoverished, abused, mired in mental illness, engaging in sex work as a means of survival. As the cases went unsolved, the community began to look inward. Combining muckraking research and immersive journalism over the course of a five-year investigation, Murder in the Bayou is the story of an American town buckling under the dark forces of poverty and racial and class division - and a lightning rod for justice for the daughters it lost.
