    So we don't know COD for Loretta, right?
    Do we know if she was sexually assaulted?

    This website (hope it's okay to link) has an interview with Loretta's husband (they were separated at the time of her death):
    http://jdpkiller.wordpress.com/2011/08/07/2959/

    Highlights:
    -apparently there's no definitive COD for Loretta
    - Her husband says she had started having seizures the year before. He suspects she may have been off her seizure meds & doing something she shouldn't have been (I'm guessing drugs due to the high levels of Cocaine in her system) & became unresponsive. Allegedly, he heard she was brought to someone's house for medical attention but couldn't be revived. Doesn't say who this person is or who brought her to this person's house. I'd like to know both & if either show up as POIs or victims in later murders.
    - her husband wasn't questioned by LE for 4 years after her death even though they were separated at the time of her disappearance & had called LE on each other in the past. What the hey?!
    - and from her victim page on the same site, "There was speculation early on that Chaisson was killed by Mexican migrant workers after allegedly robbing a group of workers in town, according to court records."

    No info on sexual assault. This is something I have been trying to figure out for all the victims. To me, sexual assualt vs. no sexual assault points to a different type of serial killer(s) (or multiple killers if some were sexually assaulted & some not).

    ETA: I wonder if there's a doctor or nurse somehow tangentially connected to this circle of friends whose house Loretta may have been brought to for medical attention. Of course, I kind of doubt that this scenario ever even played out.

    COD undetermined because of advanced decomp. I suppose sexual assault would also be hard to determ

    Thanks ktgirl. I'm pretty sure it's okay to link that site, as it's been done on this forum many times. It is also a site with a wealth of info on these cases.

    I wanted to add that Loretta was found partial clothed with no shoes.

    Took this from the original victims thread compliments of suejay40
    "Loretta Lynn Chaisson Lewis (victim) is the cousin of Tracee Chaisson (suspect). Their mothers are sisters. Tracee's mother is Ruth Smith. Loretta's mother is Betty Jean Chaisson. Cannot give a link, because it is through intellius.com info. "

    Hi. I am working on some photos for you. Bessie was kind enough to give me this link to the map of where the victims were found; Map. I mean no disrespect by pointing out that the location indicated on that map for where LLCL's body was found is incorrect. According to the info posted above and all of the info I have been reading, her body was found using this description of the location;

    A fisherman discovered Loretta’s body floating in the east fork of the Grand Marais Canal a few miles southwest of Jennings. The location was just north of the bridge on LA highway 1126 about 3 miles west of LA highway 26.
    -Source

    Notice the location indicates "East Fork" of the canal. Well, on the map that Bessie sent me the link to view, the location of where she was found was incorrectly marked on the West Fork See Map of West Fork.

    Attached is a snapshot of the map Bessie provided to me along with the area circled where this victim's body actually was found.

    Once again, I mean no disrespect for Bessie or whoever labeled that map.

    I will now work on uploading some photos of the area. There are not many buildings of interest there so it is possible that the pilot who took the photos I will be posting didn't bother to fly low enough for great detail. We shall see.

    Google Streetview has a really great view of the location where she was found.

    I can try uploading my pics from the sky but nothing is going to be as clear and and detailed as this. See attached.

    How in the world did someone get her body out there? Is there an easy access point? A road or something? My impression is that if the perp doesn't live in the area he/she certainly knows it well!
