Well...I don't know if BSL led police to the site where the body was buried but it has positively been identified as Mickey.

What would keep the cops from saying Brandon showed them where to find Mickey?

I dont believe the cops can say that he led them to the body because he probably made a plea deal and it has to officially be approved by the district judge. Once they have a hearing and the judge accepts the plea deal I'm sure that it will come out that he led them to Mickey's body.

It was he. He does not want the death penalty. I'm sure Lisa Pate and Mickey Didn't want it either. Let's not give him the choice!

He is a psycopathic killer and although he didn't dress up like an old lady (like the guy in the movie, Psycho), his mind is separated or compartmentalized. He's able to charm and trick people and also hold down an offshore job - and be a good model prisoner to shorten his sentence. However, his other demonic persona, rears it's ugly head from time to time. I'm sure there are more of his victims lying buried in Texas and possibly other states. When the whole truth comes out, he will get the death penalty, regardless of giving information about Mickey's location. On Tiger Droppings I read he had his brother come to his trailer to pray with him because there was a demon in his trailer - yep - Brandon is the only demon that was in that trailer. No need for rosaries or exorcists - just jail and the D.P.

If he made a plea deal, it's for all info on everyone so he can't get death penalty if he were the one to show them and get it off

That's true, if he has confessed to everything - but what if evidence comes to light about his involvement in some more murders?- more plea deals, I suppose? I believe he has several graves all over the place and some are filled and some were waiting to be filled after Mickey, if he hadn't been caught. I just think he murdered more women between his release from jail in 2008 and Mickey in May 2012. I guess good police investigative work and time will tell if I'm right on this.

Some of the Jennings 8 victims were murdered while he was incarcerated, but he could have been responsible for some of them I suppose. Also, some victims along the I45 corridor in Houston possibly.

I think he did too but I think I read somewhere that if they find he's connected to others, the plea deal still stands. I'll try to find where I read it at. I think he did too. On missing persons of America, since 2008, until his recent arrest, 8 women have gone missing on that stretch of hwy he took to visit relatives in tx n only one wasn't walking. Haven't found any traces of them whatsoever. I'm not saying he did them but they need to look into them n the dates he was working.

True in part. I don't have exact time Brandon was released from jail in 2008 and he could have been let out on parole for good behavior earlier than 2008. Does anyone have exact dates?
The Jennings 8 may have been a good "cover" for him. What about Necole Jean Guillory?
Coroner says Jennings woman was asphyxiated

Jennings woman Necole Jean Guillory died of probable asphyxia, Acadia Parish Coroner Dr. Mark A. Dawson said Friday.

Asphyxia arises from a deficient supply of oxygen to the body that causes the victim to be unable to breathe normally.

Guillory, 26, was likely strangled, smothered or suffocated, Dawson said. The investigation is still in its beginning stages. There was no sign of trauma to Guillory's body, Dawson added.

She is the eighth Jennings woman since 2005 who has gone missing and turned up dead. Guillory was reported missing an hour before her body was discovered. She had been missing since Sunday.

The cause of death in most of the other cases was never determined, but most of the women found dead were missing clothing when their bodies were discovered. Guillory's lower half was unclothed, Dawson said. Her body was also decomposing, similar to the other women.

Guillory's body was found disposed of Wednesday near Interstate 10 in Egan, between Jennings and Crowley. Her death was ruled as a murder.

Visitation for Guillory began Friday. It will begin again at 7 a.m. Saturday at Matthews and Son Funeral Home in Jennings. A service will follow at 10 a.m.

Guillory would have been 27 next week. She had four children and three sisters, according to her obituary.

"She enjoyed listening to music and loved being outdoors," the obituary reads, adding that the loss of Guillory "is not only felt by her family and friends, but by everyone in the community."

The mysterious deaths began in May 2005 when fisherman discovered the body of 28-year-old Loretta Lynn Chaisson floating in the Grand Marais drainage canal a couple miles southwest of Jennings. After that, Ernesteine Marie Daniel Patterson, 29; Kristen Elizabeth Gary Lopez, 21; Whitnei Charlene Dubois, 26; Brown, 23; Chrystal Shay Benoit, 24; and Brittney Gary, 17, were all found dead in rural areas of Jeff Davis Parish.

Gary's body was discovered on Nov. 15, 2008, nearly two weeks after she went missing.

Police have stopped short of calling the deaths serial killings, but acknowledge that there are patterns in the cases and perhaps one offender.

Although Guillory's body was disposed of along the interstate, it was still left in an open area, like the others.

"In reaction to heightened public awareness and intensive law enforcement investigation, the offender has changed his method of operation. For instance, the most recent victim's body was discarded off to the side of Interstate 10 in Acadia Parish," Jeff Davis Parish Sheriff Ricky Edwards said in a release Wednesday. "Previous victims' bodies were discarded off to the side of smaller, rural roads."

Edwards did not return phone calls or e-mails requesting comment Friday.

The murdered women also lived similar high risk lifestyles. All were known to do drugs most commonly crack cocaine and sometimes sold sex for drugs. They all lived on the southside of Jennings at some point.

I'm sure the police are looking at all murders or disappearances before and after his release.
