This weekend the Investigation Discovery channel will air a four-part special on the unsolved murders of women in Jeff Davis Parish.

“Death on The Bayou: The Jennings 8” will air as four 1 hour segments starting Saturday, June 15, 2019.

The eight unsolved deaths happened between 2005 and 2009.

Death in the Bayou: The Jennings 8, a new, four-part ID documentary special event, explores this ongoing mystery as it’s never been covered before, by way of exclusive access provided by the family of Whitnei Dubois, one of the victims.

The special chronicles the quest of Whitnei’s sister, Taylor Dubois, and her niece to find answers. Along the way, the grieving relatives uncover shocking new information regarding the killings, as well as allegations that an active cover-up may be keeping justice from being served.

Investigation Discovery says the special will feature interviews family members of victims, as well as local law enforcement and previously apprehended suspects.

On Investigation Discovery’s website, Saturday’s episode “A Town Divided” will air at 10:00 pm and is 2 hours long. Those episodes will re-air starting at 7:00 pm on Sunday. A new 2-hour episode is scheduled to air at 10:00 p.m. on Sunday.
