Biography[edit | edit source]
In the Spring of 2008, Detective Bellefleur was called in to investigate the homicide of a local woman named Maudette Pickens. Sheriff Dearborne and he recovered a videotape at the crime scene which showed that Maudette had engaged in sexual relations with Jason Stackhouse on the night that she was killed. Bellefleur had an unpleasant history with Jason and was more than willing to point the finger of blame at Jason for Maudette's murder. Bud and Andy brought Jason in for questioning and Andy detained him for twelve hours, deliberately allowing Jason to believe that he had accidentally killed Maudette during sex even though the videotape proved otherwise. 
Bellefleur's dislike for Jason intensified when, only a few days later, he was called in to investigate a second strangling, waitress Dawn Green. Similar to the case with Maudette, Jason had engaged in sexual intercourse with Dawn on the same evening as her death. Andy was wholly convinced that Jason killed both women and arrested him. During questioning however, both Bud and Andy realized that they had no substantial evidence to keep Jason locked up. Jason's longtime friend Tara Thornton arrived at the Police station and provided Jason with an alibi for his whereabouts. Bud and Andy both suspected that Tara was lying to protect Jason, but they had little choice but to let him go.
