Terry Speaks Terry Speaks

Hancock County - Police in Hancock County, Mississippi say a Kenner man with multiple aliases may be linked to the murder of Bourbon Street dancer Jaren Lockhart. 

Police say 39 year-old Terry Speaks was booked with aggravated assault and on fugitive warrants unrelated to the murder.

A spokesperson with the U.S. Marshals said Speaks was scheduled to have a 2pm magistrate hearing in New Orleans for failure to register as a sex offender in North Carolina.

He has not been charged with the murder of Lockhart.

A detention hearing is scheduled on Friday at 10am before a magistrate judge.

Also in police custody is 28 year-old Margaret Sanchez of Kenner. She is being held in Tangipahoa Parish on a resisting an officer charge.

Hancock investigators say the two are seen on a video from the club where Lockhart worked, and that they left with Lockhart early on June 6.
