Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Patrol Deputies responded to a burglar alarm at the Kuntry Korner convenience store in Calhoun at 1:19 a.m. on Jan 5, 2020.  As deputies arrived, a suspect vehicle was observed leaving the location.  The vehicle was determined to be stolen out of Mississippi and the driver of the vehicle refused to stop for deputies.  A pursuit ensued, ending in West Monroe where the three occupants of the vehicle, an adult and two juveniles, were apprehended.

Law enforcement authorities have verified 50 of his confessions so far and are scrambling to link dozens more cold cases to his recollections. Our graphic shows the states in which he is believed to have committed his crimes.
