A friend of several of the victims, who Brown said he did not identify “out of concern for her safety,” made similar claims in a 2015 interview with the author.The anonymous woman told Brown that two of the prostitutes had told her Boustany was their client, and one said she frequently met with Boustany at the Boudreaux Inn.
Those anonymous accounts are far from a smoking gun. David Vitter (R-LA), whom Boustany is running to replace, lost his bid for Louisiana governor last year amid a prostitution scandal in which a sex worker by the name of Wendy Ellis publicly accused Vitter of forcing her to get an abortion after impregnating her.
Brown also confirmed that a longtime Boustany aide, Martin Guillory, co-leased an inn in the city of Jennings that was known to police as a hotbed of prostitution and had met “one or two” of the victims before their deaths.
Boustany’s staffers said that Guillory concealed his involvement in the motel from them and that he left his post as a field representative for the campaign last week.
Boustany has served on the House Ways and Means Committee, has an “A” rating from the NRA, and is campaigning for Senate on a platform of boosting energy production in the Bayou State, reducing taxes and supporting traditional “Louisiana values.” The congressman has never been accused of any impropriety before, making the claims set forth in “Murder in the Bayou” all the more startling. It seems unlikely he would manufacture such charges or report them without a solid reportorial basis.
As a reporter and author of four books, Brown has extensively covered crime in Louisiana, drug policy, and the devastation wreaked by Hurricane Katrina for respected publications including New York Magazine, The Guardian and Mother Jones.
