A foliage-draped cross and flowers, and signs with the writing washed away by rain mark a spot on Burbank Drive near where Madison Brooks was fatally struck by a car around 2:50 a.m. Jan. 15, according to authorities. The 19-year-old LSU sophomore was raped in the back of a car before being dropped off in a nearby neighborhood, authorities said. She had been drinking at Reggie's bar before the incident, and deputies said Brooks had a blood-alcohol level of .319, nearly four times the legal limit to drive and enough to give someone alcohol poisoning and render them unconscious.

A man facing a rape count in connection with the Madison Brooks case has been arrested again for allegedly raping a pre-teen girl at a birthday party in 2020, arrest documents show. 

Kaivon Washington, 18, was booked into the Livingston Parish Detention Center on a count of first-degree rape, online booking records showed Friday night.

According to arrest documents obtained by The Advocate, the victim accused Washington of assaulting her at a Walker pool party in May 2020 when Washington was 16 and the girl was 12. 

When she reported the rape in March 2021, the victim told police she and several other juveniles had been swimming at an apartment complex when she and a female friend went back to the victim's apartment. They were then joined by Washington and another male friend, the document says. 

The victim said Washington followed her to a room, pulled a towel off of her, threw her on a bed, covered her mouth and raped her, according to the affidavit. The assault lasted about a half-hour, she told an investigator. 

The arrest document says investigators revisited the 2020 accusation this week after Washington was arrested in the Brooks case. The new affidavit says Livingston Parish law enforcement spoke to a female juvenile who was in the apartment after the swimming party.

Washington was among four individuals arrested and accused in Brooks' rape, which occurred after they all had been at Reggie's Bar in Tigerland.   

Arrest documents in that case say deputies were told Brooks, 19, had asked the group to drive her home because she was drunk and couldn't find her friends. Washington and a 17-year-old male are accused of raping the woman in the back seat of a car while two other men, Cason Carver, 18, and Everett Lee, 28, sat in the front seat. 

Deputies later said Brooks had a blood-alcohol level of .319. Surveillance footage of Brooks leaving Reggie's showed she was visibly intoxicated. 

The four dropped Brooks off in a subdivision and she was hit by a car on Burbank Drive and later died at a hospital. Washington and the 17-year-old were both booked on a count of third-degree rape.
