This is the house where Jonathan Dotson was found murdered on November 7th 2015. Dotson, a Bywater native, was only 31 years old.
Mr Dotson is set to appear in New Orleans-shot ‘A Quiet Storm’ a film from director Jason Affolder. He is killed at the beginning of the movie.
In an interview with the Times-Pic Affolder calls the coincidence “…a surreal blurring of reality and fiction.”
We took this photo two weeks before Dotson was killed. We’re always taking pictures to document the changes in the 9th Ward. One constant in this neighborhood is crime: murder, armed robbery, rape, carjackings, home invasions.
There have been 140 murders this year in New Orleans
