Videos may hold clues in strip club dancer's death


NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A south Mississippi sheriff's investigator is hoping surveillance video from Bourbon Street in New Orleans will provide clues about the death of a strip club dancer whose dismembered body washed ashore on the Gulf Coast.

Hancock County Chief Investigator Glen Grannon said Sunday that 22-year-old Jaren Lockhart reported for work Tuesday night and left early Wednesday.

Her torso was found late Thursday in Bay St. Louis. Other body parts, including her head and parts of her legs were found later in coastal Harrison County.

Grannon said experts on tides would be consulted Monday to help determine where the body parts were likely dumped.

Lockhart had been living at a New Orleans motel. She had been reported missing by her boyfriend last week.
