Kaylen Johnson's boyfriend has been arrested in connection to Johnson & her 2-yr-old son's disappearance and deaths.

Baton Rouge Police arrested Brynnen Murphy, 20 in connection to the disappearance and deaths of Kaylen Johnson and her son, Kaden Johnson.


The mother and son were reported missing by BRPD on Saturday, March 12th.

On March 14th, Kaylen Johnson’s body was found on Burbank with her 2-yr-old son Kaden found near Central Thruway. 

Murphy is Kaylen’s boyfriend.

Sources tell Unfiltered with Kiran that Murphy confessed to detectives and led them to both bodies. Sources added Johnson was pregnant at the time of her death, but it’s unclear how far along she was. Sources added the toddler was alive when he was tossed over the Central Thruway.

Murphy was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on two counts of first degree murder. He will be held without bond. After the autopsies on the mother & son, Murphy was also charged with one count of first degree feticide.
