Whatever happened to A.J. Breaux?

“Bayou Justice”

Officially, Adam John “A.J.” Breaux died in 1998, the day a judge declared him legally dead. However, no one knows what happened to the friendly clothing salesman who vanished on Aug, 27, 1991.

The search for A.J. Breaux began 30 years ago this year, but every August, without fail, his three grown daughters reach out to the news media, still hoping to learn the fate of a father they loved.
