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.
