So, brace yourself and get ready to learn about one of the hideous murders of a young, innocent lady. Here we will be talking about who she is, her husband, family as well as her net worth at the time of her death.
Who is Eugenie Boisfontaine? Her Wiki and Family
Eugenie Boisfontaine was just 34-year-old when she was murdered. She was an innocent woman who was still a student at that time. As the case is decades old, very much information about her is known to the public except that she was a graduate of Louisiana State University.
Similarly, her date of her, her parents’ names and the rest about her early childhood is also not released to the media.
When and How did Eugenie Boisfontaine Die?
Boisfontaine was last seen on the 13th of June, 1997 at the place of her residence, Baton Rouge. Investigators started finding out clues of her. Before that, a usual jogger in that area found out Eugenie’s credit cards and license close to the University Lake. The cards were arranged weirdly in a circle.
A few days later, search troop went on for a more in-depth search in the lake and found out her keys as well. It was only after months, in August 1997, her body was found. It was awfully decomposed in the south of East Baton Rouge, Louisiana, by the Bayou Manchac. By that time, her skull was fractured, and the investigators speculated she was kidnapped while going for her usual jogging round around the lake.
Two similar cases of murder had happened a few years back near to where Eugenie lived. The serial killer Derrick Todd Lee was accused of it. So, people started doubting from for Eugenie’s murder as well. Scientists even tried to find DNA of the murderer by searching for her dental and nail records with a hope that she had tried biting or scratching the attacker.
Unluckily, no extra DNA was detected. A TV show called ‘Killing Fields’ on Discovery Channel started the investigation of the murder 20 years later. In the reality TV show, officer Rodie Sanchez tried unraveling the mystery behind Boisfontaine’s demise. However, the case is now close in the show as they couldn’t find anything to resolve it.

However, Mike, being one of the suspects of the murder, was asked for a sample of DNA, but he refused to provide it to the investigators. His refusal forced the investigative team to get the samples without his consent and knowledge. Hence, they became successful in doing so by collecting the DA from the handle of his car.
The test came out negative. Later, after finding it out, Mike threatened to sue the team for forcefully obtaining his DNA without his consent. The matter later got resolved when Mike was given privacy from his private life.
Eugenie Boisfontaine’s Net Worth Before Death
As Eugenie was still a student at the time of her murder, she must not have started her career then. Similarly, it was also hinted that she comes from a middle-class family, which explains that she was not ‘rich’ at the time of her death.
However, neither her career (if she had any) nor her net worth or salary is known to anyone in public.
