Police have said Brooks’ body was found in a city park near the Red River on Jan. 11. He had been reported as a possible kidnapping victim to the Ball Police Department on the night of Jan. 9. During the hearing on the defense’s motion, Alexandria Police Department Detective Jason Mouliere testified about the timing of what had happened and how the three defendants became suspects in the case. Lavalais’ defense attorney, Christopher LaCour, asked Mouliere to describe how he became involved in the case, and the detective said he had been notified by patrol officers about a body that had been found underneath the Purple Heart Memorial Bridge.

An Alexandria man’s request to reduce his $1 million bail was denied Monday, and new details about the January body discovery near the Red River were revealed. Terrance K. Lavalais, 22, is one of three people charged in the death of Deven Slade Brooks, 27, of Ball. In April, he was charged with second-degree murder alongside Jamaria Xavier Randle and Tremaine Deshun Veal. Before the hearing on his motion to reduce his bond, he pleaded not guilty.

Deven Slade Brooks case: 3rd man arrested in connection to death of Ball man The body was bound with cables, zip ties and duct tape, he testified, and had been thrown down a “small cliff.” While at the scene, investigators learned about the report regarding Brooks. After looking at a photo of Brooks, they tentatively identified him as the victim. He later was identified through his fingerprints. Ball investigators also brought them body camera video from a traffic stop on U.S. Highway 165 that took place about 44 minutes before Brooks was reported missing, he said.

Randle and Lavalais were in Brooks’ car, and they were either coming or going to a Walmart, he said. Mouliere also testified that investigators had talked to at least two of Brooks’ neighbors, one of whom placed Randle at his apartment. He said the neighbor told police Brooks sought help getting Randle to leave his home.
