Teaser Tuesdays (76)


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by The Purple Booker. In this meme, we grab our current read, open it to a random page and share two teaser sentences from somewhere on that page with our readers.

Here is my teaser:

Fifteen days after Oliver LeBanks was murdered, Joseph Brown turned up dead, his partially clothed body found on the western end of Veteran’s Memorial Boulevard in Kenner. That gave venue to the detectives of St. Charles Parish, who soon discovered that Brown, an African American, was all of sixteen years old.

As for the method of death, the coroner concluded “death by asphyxiation, due to strangulation”. The police had no other clues or leads to the killer. One month later, Bruce Williams became the next victim discovered. This time, the body was fully clothed, dumped in an industrial area of Jefferson Parish.
