Authorities boosted the reward from $35,000 to $85,000 for information about who killed eight women in rural Jefferson Davis Parish since 2005.
The reward is being offered by the FBI, sheriff's office, and the parish district attorney's office.
Investigators think the women may have been murdered by the same person.
They are Loretta Chaisson Lewis, Ernestine Daniels Patterson, Kristen Gary Lopez, Whitnei Dubois, Laconia "Muggy" Brown, Crystal Shay Benoit Zeno, Brittney Gary, and Necole Guillory, who was killed in August.
Most of the bodies were dumped along rural roads.
Investigators say some of the women knew each other and they all had similar lifestyles.
