Leon Gary Plauche (November 10, 1945 – October 20, 2014) was a native of Louisiana, known for the 1984 killing of Jeff Doucet, who had kidnapped and sexually assaulted his son, Jody Plauche. The killing occurred at the Baton Rouge Airport on Friday, March 16, 1984, and was captured on camera by a news crew.
He had been extradited back to Baton Rouge and was walking through the airport when Plauche, waiting by some payphones pulled out a gun and fired a shot. Plauche was given five years probation for the shooting and received no jail time. Plauche claimed until his death that he was in the right, and that anyone in a similar situation would have done the same thing.
Seems like justice to me!!
