Darlene Ferrin and Mike Mageau were in blue Rock Springs Park when they were each shot with a 9mm semiautomatic pistol .

There was an event called Mardi Gras where a group of people came together to celebrate fat Tuesday,a day before Lent day. During this event Jake was murdered,the murder is yet not identified, and all we know is that Mr. Naquin was murdered in the bathroom with a Mardi Gras. It is to my believe that Mr. Naquin was murdered by Ms. Amy La Fleur due to the fact that witnesses mention how they saw Jake leave a minute before Amy did and no one knows where Ms. La Fleur went . Although Ms. La Fleur came back 30 sec or so before Ross found Mr.Naquin no one else was gone during the event of Mr. Naquin's death therefore leaving Mr. La Fleur to be the only one besides the victim who was missing during the event. One is more likely to be blamed for a crime if they were not present during the murder
