Leaked Video of LSU Student Madison Brooks Sparks Outrage and Shame

A leaked video clip of Madison Brooks, a 19-year-old Louisiana State University (LSU) student, has sparked outrage and raised questions about the circumstances leading up to her tragic death. The video shows Brooks in a heated argument with two men, who are her alleged rapists, just moments before she was fatally struck by a rideshare vehicle on January 15th, 2022.

The video, taken by one of the men, was released by their defense attorneys to WBRZ last week, claiming it exonerates their clients. However, Brooks’ mother’s attorney, Kerry Miller, called the release of the video “hurtful and shameful.”

In the 29-second clip, Brooks can be seen slurring her words and apologizing for offending the men. She then tells one of the men to get out of the car and announces that she will Uber on her own. As she gets out of the car, Brooks can be heard calling the driver, Casen Carver, “gay.” Shortly afterward, Brooks was hit by a car and later declared dead at the hospital.

The defense attorneys argue that the video proves Brooks had consensual s*x with two of the men and was not raped. They claim that Brooks was insulting the driver and using vulgar language before exiting the vehicle. Attorney Ron Haley, who is defending one of the suspects, said, “not being put in the best light isn’t the same thing as rape.”

Prosecutors, on the other hand, have argued that Brooks was too intoxicated to consent to s*x. Her blood-alcohol content was 0.319% — nearly four times the legal limit at the time of the alleged rape, according to authorities.

Kaivon Deondre Washington, 18, and Desmond Carter, 17, were charged with third-degree rape. Casen Carver, 18, and Everett Lee, 28, were charged with principle to third-degree rape. The district attorney’s office is reportedly considering upgrading charges against Carver and Lee as more evidence is presented to the grand jury.

Washington has since been arrested and charged with two more alleged rapes in Livingston Parish in 2020, when he was 16, and in East Baton Rouge in October 2022 after meeting his victim at Reggie’s bar.


The leaked video of Madison Brooks has raised many questions and caused outrage among those following the case. While the defense attorneys claim that the video exonerates their clients, prosecutors argue that Brooks was too intoxicated to consent to s*x. As more evidence is presented to the grand jury, the charges against the suspects may be upgraded. Brooks’ tragic death serves as a reminder of the importance of consent and the dangers of excessive drinking.
