VENUES OF VALUE
In order to get to know Jason and glimpse into what was his daily life, I recently explored Eros and Jonesboro.
I snapped a few photos as a visual reminder that may, at some point, prove pivotal in my unbiased investigation into what happened to young Jason.

EROS POPULATION & LOCATION
According to the 2010 census, Eros, Louisiana, had a population of 155 of which 17 self-identified as “black,” 133 as “white,” 4 as “American Indian/Alaskan Native,” and 1 as “two or more races.”
Eros is situated roughly 24 miles east from Monroe and 24 miles south from Jonesboro, in rural Jackson Parish. To an outsider such as myself, it appears archaic divided racial lines still exist and allegations of corruption and political malfeasance are frequent.
