Tonight’s ‘special’ episode of Killing Fields opened with Major Ronnie Herbert, Detective Lori, Detective Rodie and Detective Aubry recounting the bodies and weapons they recover from Whiskey Bay on a weekly basis. While doing a sweep of the water with boats and sonar equipment,t he detectives recall the murder victims of Derrick Todd Lee.
During the recount, Aubry and Rodie talk about the trouble police have had keeping long-term relationships alive with wives and girlfriends. Rodie admits to being married six times but doted on his wife Leda stating he’s finally happy and doesn’t want to make the same mistakes of his past.
Derrick Todd Lee’s murder spree started in August 23, 1992 and ended in May of 2003 when he was apprehended at his girlfriends house by the use of cell phone records. He was accused of seven murders but only charged with two.
Victim one, Randie Mebruer. She had a three-year old son who awoke in the middle of the night looking for his mom. He heard her talking to someone. So he quietly tiptoed back to bed. In the morning his mother was gone. Michael ran to a neighbors and they called the police. There was blood everywhere. Her body has never been found.
Victim two, Pam Kinamoore. She had come home from work to take a bath. Unknowingly the murderer had broken in and abducted her from her home. Her body was found nude in Whiskey Bay by a road construction worker.
Victim three, Marianne Fowler. Marianne’s son begged her to spend the Christmas holiday with him, but chose instead to go to see her husband who was serving a prison sentence. She stopped at a sandwich shop and was abducted while trying to get into her car. She struggled. Robbery was not the motive since her purse and credit cards were left behind.
The strip mall across the street had an outdated surveillance system and caught only a small part of the abduction. It didn’t help police. An eye-witness never helped when they reported a white truck with a white driver and an unconscious woman in the truck. It was a false lead.
A student Carrie Lynne Yoder was abducted at her apartment. Her body was found beaten and thrown from the bridge into Whiskey Bay.
DNA recovered from Kinamoore and Yoder along with other victims like Geralyn DeSoto and Charlotte Murray Pace led police to an African-American man named Derrick Todd Lee. South Louisianan women were terrified they would be next.
On May 3, 2003 he was apprehended. He was only charged in two murders. DeSoto and Pace. The rest of his victims will go unsolved as the bodies have not been found to-date. Lee was sentenced to one life sentence and one death sentence. Lee died in the hospital due to complications of a pace maker surgery on January 21,2016.
