    Tips from witnesses aren’t the only leads investigators are following. Evidence turned over to the FBI after a forensic search of the suspects, car found hair that can be used for comparison.

    One year later, no arrest in jaren Lockhart's death
    June 8, 2013
    By KEVIN McGILL — Associated Press

    NEW ORLEANS — It's been a year since pieces of Jaren Lockhart's body began washing up on Mississippi's Gulf Coast and almost that long since two people seen leaving a Bourbon Street strip club with the dancer were named as suspects in her death and dismemberment.
    One, Margaret Sanchez, 29, is free. "We think she's somewhere near Las Vegas," says Glenn Grannon, an investigator with the Hancock County, Miss., Sheriff's Office.

    Studies of Gulf currents at the time indicate the body was dumped somewhere off the Mississippi coast, Grannan said.
    Still, it remains unclear where she was killed and exactly where the body parts were disposed of.

    Source: Arrest made in Jaren Lockhart investigation
    Margaret Sanchez taken back into custody
    UPDATED 8:47 AM CDT May 07, 2014

    KENNER, La. —Margaret Sanchez, a woman previously identified in connection with the murder of Jaren Lockhart, was arrested Wednesday morning and is expected to be charged with a count of second-degree murder, a source close to the investigation told the WDSU I-Team.

    Earlier reports:

    April 22, 2014

    Kenner Police will now take the lead on the investigation into the 22-year-old's murder, with continued help from Grannan's detectives and the FBI. Authorities hope the agencies' combined resources can help finally find justice for Lockhart.

    "Nobody, absolutely nobody deserves to have their life ended this way," Kenner Police Chief Steve Caraway said.
    http://www.nola.com/crime/index.ssf/...es_look_t.html
    No developments from the evidence has been released. However, Caraway said investigators in Hancock County believe the killing didn't happen in Mississippi.

    "There is some evidence that was collected -- some forensic evidence -- that is still being examined. So we don't have the results of that," Caraway said. "We will seek the results of those examinations."

    The FBI said it is working to process the evidence that was collected.

    "Some of the processing on evidence we have received has been completed and we have shared the results with our partners. More lab examinations of evidence continues as the investigation into the crime continues," the FBI said in a statement on Tuesday.

    A Confession & New Gruesome Details Emerge In The Jaren Lockhart Murder Investigation
    by Vanessa Bolano
    May 8, 2014

    Kenner Police Chief Steve Caraway says 30-year-old Margaret Sanchez has been booked with second degree murder and obstruction of justice.

    “That pertains to the dismemberment. The cutting up of the body and throwing the body into the Gulf,” explains Kenner Police Chief Steve Caraway.

    “At this point obviously he has not been charged. He is in custody in New York,” says Chief Caraway.

    Chief Caraway says the confession did not lead to Margaret Sanchez’s arrest. Instead, he says new witnesses and technology played a major role.

    Chief Caraway now says Speaks has confessed to the crime saying he and Sanchez killed Lockhart, cut her up, and disposed of her. According to Chief Caraway, Lockhart agreed to leave with Speaks and Sanchez after they offered to pay her to party and have an encounter with the two. As to what went wrong, that is still a mystery.

    Kenner PD believes Margaret Sanchez was involved in death, dismemberment of Jaren Lockhart
    Bond set at $750,000 for Sanchez
    UPDATED 4:13 PM CDT May 08, 2014
    "In just two weeks (Kenner detectives) were able to do something that hasn’t been accomplished in a year or two. It speaks highly of the men and women of the Kenner Police Department," Caraway said. "Some witnesses were people that weren’t even mentioned by the Mississippi authorities. Just due to the going over that investigation – those statements, those reports that were done by Hancock County, our investigators were able to locate some additional witnesses."
    Caraway went on to say "significant" evidence was collected Wednesday when Sanchez was taken into custody.

    Police say 'very significant' new info led to arrest in Jaren Lockhart murder, Speaks remains suspect
    By The Associated Press
    on May 08, 2014 at 2:59 PM, updated May 08, 2014 at 3:08 PM

    Caraway said license plate recognition cameras that are used to locate car thieves showed that a car tied to Speaks and Sanchez was in Kenner shortly after a surveillance camera showed them leaving a New Orleans strip club with Lockhart after her shift there on June 12, 2012.

    "Some time later they were picked up going to Mississippi and returning here from Mississippi after staying in Mississippi for just a brief time," he said.

    [snip]

    It's not clear where Lockhart was killed. Investigators believe the killers tried to clean up the crime scene and DNA evidence is not yet back from the FBI, Caraway said.

    He said the FBI has assured detectives that they will get the remaining evidence.

    "Obviously, this isn't the only murder case their lab processes. ... And there's new evidence that will be sent to them," he said.

    The new evidence was collected at her parents' house, where Sanchez was arrested, Caraway said.

    Suspect admitted to killing, dismembering Jaren Lockhart, authorities say
    Arrest report says Terry Speaks confessed to crime

    UPDATED 11:19 PM CDT May 08, 2014

    According to the arrest report obtained by WDSU, Speaks provided information that “he and Sanchez had killed a girl in Louisiana, cut up her body and dumped it in a body of water.”

    The arrest report also revealed grisly details of the mutilation of Lockhart’s body to conceal her identity. The report stated that “swatches of skin which bore different tattoos, were strategically removed from the victim’s body.”

    “We’ve all just been trying to hold together. It’s a hard thing to do, but we struggled a lot,” says Lance Lockhart, “God has probably prepared us for this situation. He knew. He knew this day was coming.”

    “I’ve just been really patient. I knew we’d come to ahead and everyone would get what they deserved. It just took time,” says Lance Lockhart.

    Jaren Lockhart was only 22-years-old. Her family says they’re lucky a piece of her still lives inside her five year old daughter Rylie.

    “She was a good person. She loved everybody,” says Jaren’s mother Donna Lockhart.

    It’s hard for Donna Lockhart to speak about her daughter, but she has a burning question she’d like answered.

    “I want to know why you killed my daughter. She didn’t deserve it. I’d ty to get them to tell me why they did it,” says Donna Lockhart.

    Kenner Police announced an arrest warrant for Terry Speaks for second-degree murder and obstruction of justice. Speaks is currently in federal custody in Otisville, N.Y. on an unrelated charge, but he is scheduled to be released from the federal prison in October.

    According to Kenner Police Chief Steve Caraway, Speaks will be extradited to Louisiana for the murder charge and obstruction of justice, as well as failing to register as a sex offender.

    Kenner police obtain arrest warrant in Jaren Lockhart's murder and dismemberment case
    By Paul Purpura, NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune
    June 12, 2014 at 5:32 PM

    The warrant for Speaks' arrest was not unexpected. Speaks admitted his involvement in Lockhart's death to two inmates at the New York prison, detective have said. One of the inmates claims Speaks said that Sanchez and the victim got into a fight, "and that the female ended up dead," Kenner Police Detective David Stromeyer testified last month.

    Those inmates, who have not been identified, sought deals with prosecutors in exchange for providing information about what Speaks said, the detectives testified.

    Last year, after FBI and Hancock County detectives spoke with Speaks at the federal prison, he darted off an email to Sanchez, angrily telling her he "cleaned up the mess."

    Suspect pleads not guilty in dismemberment case
    Chad Calder ccalder@theadvocate.com
    Aug. 25, 2014

    Margaret Sanchez, one of the two suspects in the killing and dismemberment Bourbon Street dancer Jaren Lockhart, pleaded not guilty on Monday to charges of second-degree murder, obstruction of justice and conspiracy to obstruct justice.

    Sanchez, 30, said nothing other than “yes” when asked by 24th Judicial District Judge Stephen Grefer if she was pleading not guilty to the charges.

    She otherwise spent most of the hearing shackled and rubbing her red, bleary eyes as she stared out the window of a courtroom at the Jefferson Parish courthouse in Gretna.

    In Bourbon Street dancer's dismemberment, defendant Margaret Sanchez denied knowing the slain woman
    By Paul Purpura, NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune
    Email the author | Follow on Twitter
    on January 14, 2015 at 8:28 AM, updated January 14, 2015 at 5:46 PM

    Five days after Bourbon Street dancer Jaren Lockhart's torso washed up on a Mississippi beach, Margaret Sanchez told detectives she knew nothing about the woman or the details of the killing. She said that on the morning police think Lockhart was fatally stabbed, she was in Kenner, vomiting and defecating throughout her house because of "bad shrimp" she ate the night before.

    Her statements were made during an interrogation 2 1/2 years ago, and a transcript of the interview was filed into the court record Monday as Sanchez and co-defendant Terry Christopher Speaks near trial. The transcripts and other documents provide the public with the first look at the early stages of the Lockhart homicide investigation and Sanchez's initial response to being a suspect.

    [...]

    "He's supposed to be my husband," Sanchez told detectives. "But I guess he's not my husband, because I'm being told that Allen isn't even his real name."

    [...]

    Sanchez replied, "Is that the girl I keep hearing about, that everybody keeps telling me about from the news?

    "Yes," Grannan replied. "Do you understand that you left, you and Allen left the bar with her, OK?"

    "I felt so bad for her family, because I had a friend, my friend was Addie Hall," Sanchez said. "She was cut up and was cooked, and her boyfriend jumped off a hotel."

    Terry Speaks trial next week on sex registration charge, June in Jaren Lockhart's death

    Terry Speaks at the Louis Armstrong Airport, October 2014

    Terry Speaks, the former Kenner resident accused of killing and dismembering Bourbon Street dancer Jaren Lockhart, is scheduled to stand trial next week on a charge of failing to register as a sex offender in Jefferson Parish. Authorities say Speaks, 42, didn't tell them of his sex offender status after he moved to Jefferson in early 2012.

    "The state is ready to try that case," Assistant District Attorney Tommy Block announced in court during a status hearing Tuesday (March 4). He said, however, that the case might "resolve itself" by Monday, suggesting Speaks might plead guilty.

    [...]
    The state knows of no impediment to the June 15 trial date for Mr. Speaks," Block said. "So we will be ready to proceed on the homicide charge on that date."

    Asked by the judge whether he anticipates delays, Speaks' attorney, John Benz said, "Not at this time."

    Sanchez was in court, too, but her case was not addressed. Prosecutors have said they plan to put her on trial after Speaks, but a date has not been set.

    Suspect in dismemberment case to stand trial on sex offender registration charge next week
    Chad Calder| ccalder@theadvocate.com
    March 05, 2015



    Photo provided by the Kenner Police Department -- Terry Speaks

    [...]
    Speaks is expected to be tried separately from his alleged accomplice, Margaret Sanchez, though Jefferson Parish District Attorney Paul Connick’s office has yet to split up the cases. Her trial date is expected to be set in May.

    [...]
    Assistant District Attorney Tommy Block noted that Speaks’ trial on failing to register as a sex offender could be resolved by Monday, but he said jury selection would begin Wednesday if it isn’t. That charge stems from a 2003 conviction for having sex with a minor in North Carolina.

    The trials will take place in 24th Judicial District Court before Judge Stephen Grefer.
