Suspect in Madison Brooks rape, rape of 12-year-old girl remains in Livingston Parish jail

LIVINGSTON, La. — Kaivon Washington, who is charged with raping a Louisiana State University student, remains in the Livingston Parish Detention Center on a $250,000 bond after he was charged with raping a 12-year-old girl when he was 15 in 2020, officials confirm to UWK.

Washington, 18, turned himself in to the Walker Police Department January 27 after Unfiltered with Kiran broke news of the reopened 2020 rape investigation.

The teen told UWK exclusively that she met Washington at a pool party when he was a student at Walker High School. She says Washington allegedly forced his way into her apartment when she was friends.

“After me saying no about four or five times, he pushed me,” the victim recalls through tears. “He pulled my towel off, and he pushed me onto the bed and he raped me for almost an hour. When he finished raping me he got up and told me to ‘go check myself’ and he left.”

It was nearly a year before the pre-teen told her mom of the alleged assault. Her mom reported it to police, but the investigation stalled.

It wasn’t until Washington was accused and charged with raping LSU sophomore Madison Brooks that the teen posted her story on social media and investigators in Walker reopened their case.

Washington and three others were charged in connection with Brooks’ death on January 23.

Washington and a 17-year-old were both charged with third-degree rape. Casen Carver, 18, and Everett Lee, 27, have been booked and charged with principle to third degree rape.

Washington posted a $150,000 bond in the Brooks case one day before turning himself in to police in Livingston Parish.

UWK is told Washington is also the suspect in another alleged rape. That incident allegedly happened in Livingston Parish in 2021.
