Rich with history and culture and renowned as a tourist destination worldwide, New Orleans captivates visitors with its distinctively laid-back aura. But there is a side to the city that the tourism board does not publicize.
CITY CONFIDENTIAL goes inside the seamy underside of the Big Easy to tell the story of Kim Groves, a 32-year-old mother killed because she dared speak out against the police. At the center of the tale is Len Davis, a corrupt officer who augmented his income by reaping huge profits from cocaine busts throughout the city. When Groves saw Davis pistol-whipping a teenager she took action, filing a brutality charge against the officer. It would cost her her life.
While wire-tapping a cocaine dealer's phone, the FBI overheard Davis order a hit on Kim. After the murder, Davis and his accomplice were caught on tape joking about it. On the stand, he claimed that he was working undercover on his own investigation, but the jury didn't buy his story - today, Davis sits on Angola's infamous death row.
