Baton Rouge, Louisiana is known for many things including: its great food and great music but is probably best known for being the city where LSU plays all its home football games. One thing that it is not known for is serial killers, that all changed in the year 1992, when a serial killer was on the loose. Derek Todd Lee is his name, but he is best known as the Baton Rouge serial killer. Derek Lee was probably one of the worst serial killers in history. He was a sexual predator, who loved to stalk women. In I’ve been Watching You: The South Louisiana Serial Killer: it discusses Derek Lee’s early life, his troubled adult life, and provides us with a detailed account of all the murders that he committed. No one knew what Derek Lee was doing or even he chose his victims. Every woman in Baton Rouge at that time was afraid, they had to learn how to use pepper spray, guns, and basically learned self defense. No more late night jogs or shopping, Derek Lee had completely taken over Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Derek Lee was born in St. Francisville, Louisiana in the year 1968. He was a troubled kid. However, Derek Lee had some friends but sometimes loved to be alone. Some of his friends said that he was a normal kid and they did not think that Derek Lee would do something like that. As an adult, Lee had a wife and two children. His wife, Jacqueline Denise Lee said that Lee was a good father and that she could not picture him murdering anyone. Jacqueline Lee claimed

that she lived in denial of her husband transgressions. However, one of Derek Lee’s aunts suspected that Derek Lee was dangerous and she tried to get Jacqueline and her two kids away. Later, when asked the aunt said that she always felt that Derek Lee was dangerous and could not be trusted.

I think that Derek Lee was crazy. He was arrested several times, and was a shocked to many that he was never suspected in all of the murders. He would stalk women and peep into their windows. In November 1992, Derek Lee was arrested for burglary. In January 1993, Lee and a friend were arrested for breaking into an old man home that they beat and robbed. In July 1993, Lee was sentenced to a year in prison for burglary. In September 1995 and August 1997, Lee was arrested for peeping into a woman’s home. In August 1999, Lee was arrested for being caught in a woman’s residence in which he was not invited.

No one took Lee seriously or thought that he was committing these murders. At a time, the police thought that the killer was white and drove a blue truck. Lee’s killing went from 1992-2003. He was linked by DNA to several women. Lee’s DNA linked him to seven women who were murdered. The two women who fought him the most were Geralyn Desoto and Charlotte Pace. Desoto and Pace were both stabbed several times. Desoto was in her home in Addis, Louisiana when Derek Lee broke into her home and rapped and then killed her. Pace was a LSU graduate student on her way home when Lee grabbed her and raped her. Then he stabbed her repeatedly. Derek Lee was finally arrested in 2003 and Baton Rouge was returned to its glory.

In conclusion, I think what Derek Todd Lee did was unheard of and wrong. I don’t think he had a reason for killings that he committed. When he was in court, he did not even show any remorse for what he had done. He destroyed families and did not even care. Derek Lee was a sick man and he deserves everything that he gets. It is very difficult to understand how Derek Lee could kill innocent people. I know he had problems, but it still does not give him the right to kill innocent people.
