The disappearance and murder of Jaren Lockhart remains unsolved but there may be new clues in the case. Surveillance footage shows the exotic dancer leaving the strip club which employs her on the night she was last seen. The details are lacking, as detectives don't want to release too much information, but it would be interesting to see just were this leads the investigators.
Investigator Glen Grannon said the following:
'We know she made it to work and left in the early morning hours.'
However, the detective would not clarify on who she was leaving with or any of the other details involved with the last known digital footage of the woman. What is interesting, however, is that the young tattooed mother was seen leaving a motel on Tulane Avenue in the late night hours as well, but why? Could Jaren Lockhart had been involved in shady goings-on?
Jaren was reported missing by her boyfriend who said she took a cab to her Bourbon street place of employmentÂ—a strip club, but she was seen at a hotel room prior to the surveillance footage so what does this mean? Is the boyfriend on the up-and-up in this case, or are police looking at his alibi and story more closely? Was she seen leaving the club with a customer or someone she knew? Was she dabbling in prostitution or was she only an exotic dancer? The number of questions in this case are mounting, but there are just no answers.
Jaren's dismembered torso washed ashore in Mississippi last week with stab wounds. Her other body parts have been gradually recovered over the week including parts of her legs and her head. This is just absolutely gruesome and the way in which she was disposed of is rather telling of who may have killed her. Dismemberment is a personal way of disposing of a body. It indicates intimacy. It's not necessarily something a perfect stranger would do to a victim unless it's specifically part of their modus operandi.
