BlacButterflii: The Saigon Ruse Story

Saigon Ruse is on trial for a series of murders in the Louisiana town of Baton Rouge. Ruse is the youngest daughter of an affluent African American family of the same township. The story follows Saigon’s trial in the BlacButterflii murders high profile serial murder case. The murders have been coined the BlacButterflii murders due to the fact that the murder has been wearing mask exclusively made by BlacButterflii Industries, and all designs by Saigon. The Ruse family has been divided by Saigon’s arrest and ultimate trial. The family Patriarch and CEO of BlacButterflii Industries, Alden Ruse, and his oldest daughter Ayala are convinced that Saigon has been framed and has not only hired the best attorneys in the state to defend her, but has called on the local NAACP to look into possible racial factors in the case. However, Millicent Ruse, Saigon’s step mother, and her daughters Lora and Julianne Beaux believe that Saigon is guilty, so much so they have agreed to be witnesses for the prosecution. Saigon has made a name for herself in the community through her workings with the Willow’s Breeze Community outreach program, led by Lilian Bush.
