Local businessman Ted Kergan has released the following statement regarding the extradition of Leila Mullins, a suspect in the 1984 murder of his brother, Gary Kergan:
"My family is tremendously relieved that Leila Mulla has been extradited to finally face justice in the brutal 1984 death of my brother, Gary Kergan. Her return to Baton Rouge was made possible through the work of law enforcement agents in Louisiana and New York who have been extremely impressive with their diligence and professionalism.
My family is confident that as the facts of the case continue to unfold, it will become clear that Leila Mulla and Ronald Dunnagan planned all along to lure Gary into a trap and take his life.
We can't bring Gary back, but we can finally move forward in bringing his killers to justice and providing closure in my brother's brutal death."
