Boy Kidnapped and Abused by Pedophile Watched Father Kill Abuser on Live TV – .

A man who was kidnapped and abused by a pedophile at the age of 11 spoke about the moment he saw his father shoot his attacker on live television.

Gary Plauche, father of Jody Plauche, shot Jeff Doucet as he walked through the airport in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in front of press cameras.

Doucet, a karate teacher, snatched Jody away and took him nearly 3,000 kilometers from his home in Louisiana, to a California hotel in March 1984.

He had started to inflict a shocking campaign of sexual abuse and grooming on the boy.

Doucet was caught by cops when he let Jody make a collect call to his mother.

The call triggered a police raid, which resulted in Jody’s release and the pedophile’s return to Baton Rouge.

When Plauche arrived, surrounded by cops, Gary was waiting for him, as well as a team from the local television news.

Hidden under a baseball cap and sunglasses, his back to the camera and standing by a bank of pay phones, the angry father was ready for revenge.

TV cameras were recording as the enraged father pulled out a gun and fired a single shot in the side of Doucet’s head.

Jody said he still remembered the day he saw the video of his father shooting his attacker down in an 6 p.m. newscast.

An officer’s pleas: “Why, Gary, why?” had stayed with him, he said, and became the title of his new book on his father, the shooting and the fallout.

Talk to The sun In line , Jody said he had looked at the paper before, although he was told not to.

Jody Plauche, Gary Plauche’s son, wrote a book – “Why, Gary, Why?” “


“It was almost like it wasn’t real,” he said.

He recounted how he recorded the footage on a VHS tape and would watch it “over and over again”, trying to process what had happened.

While many Americans have portrayed his father as a “hero” for his act of revenge, Jody has said he disagrees.

“At first I was upset with what my dad did because at 11 I just wanted Jeff to quit and not necessarily be dead,” he said.

Jody remembered his mother telling him “Daddy shot Jeff” the day after the shooting.


Gary spent the weekend in cells for the murder, but ended up getting a suspended sentence for manslaughter with probation and community service, rather than jail time.

Jody remembered her mother telling her “Daddy shot Jeff” the day after the shooting.

He remembers breaking down in tears at the time, feeling “angry” that his father killed his attacker.

Although his father still receives online applause from “budding vigilantes” who brand him a “hero” for killing the pedo, Jody has said he “cannot” and “will not tolerate” his behavior.

Although he understands his actions, Jody said it is “more important” for a parent to be there to support their child than to put themselves in a position of prosecution.

The shooting put a strain on Jody and her father’s relationship, Jody said.

However, things eventually returned to normal, with Gary telling his son that he “felt he had nothing to lose”.

“He told me that one of them, otherwise both were going to die that night,” Jody said.

As a Catholic, Gary had the local priest at his feet and gave him “absolution and forgiveness” from God, which Jody said helped him deal mentally with what had happened.

As for Doucett, Jody said he was not angry, understanding instead that the pedophile was a “complete sociopath” who lacked feeling or empathy for others and “only used people for his own. profit ”.

Jody now hoped that his book “Why, Gary, Why?” Would help victims, survivors and relatives who have been abused.
