Donna Gayle Brazzell was a female whose partial skeleton was found in a wooded area in Rapides Parish, Louisiana. Two men were charged with her kidnapping, rape, and murder. Her cause of death was not made public until her identification.


Donna had been found within months or years after she died. Skeletal remains of a dog were found at the scene, along with wool gloves and some hair. A man stated he had shot the dog but was not aware of the victim's presence at the scene.

Two suspects were reportedly identified in 2014 and were later arrested for her kidnapping, sexual assault and murder.
