On the Trail of Ethan Brown’s Bombshell Book


By Richard Horgan Published Sept. 13 by Scribner,
 Ethan Brown’s investigation of the unsolved murders of eight prostitutes in Jennings, La. between 2005 and 2009 has generated denials, an editorial and more. Republican Louisiana Congressman Charles Boustany was quick to refute the book’s allegations that he was a client of three of the murdered prostitutes (and one other), calling Brown a “tabloid writer.” For a Sept. 15 article, the New Orleans Advocate also got a statement from the publisher:
“While we do not comment on our editorial process, Scribner is confident that Ethan Brown’s Murder in the Bayou is a responsibly reported account by an experienced journalist,” Brian Belfiglio, vice president and director of publicity at Scribner / Simon & Schuster Inc., wrote in an email.
