    Good grief, did she witness something she wasn't supposed to?

    I'm waiting to see what else is revealed. Reminds me of the murder of Renita Menzies a few years ago.

    LA - Renita Menzies, 52, Lacombe, Oct 2010 - Body found in burned out car[HR][/HR]
    Arrest 'imminent' in slaying of Hammond woman found in burning car in New Orleans, authorities say

    An arrest is "imminent" in the shooting death of a Hammond woman whose charred remains were found in a burning car in the Desire area of New Orleans, Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff Daniel Edwards said Tuesday. And authorities for the first time signaled a possible drug link to the slaying.

    [...]

    "She was a very nice and sociable person and appeared to be a very hard worker," said Pat Sicard, chief of the St. Tammany Fire Department's District 3 in Lacombe. "She was very polite and respectful. It's sad to hear about her death."


    Authorities ask anyone with information to contact Crimestoppers at 800.554.5245.

    Earlier articles said Kim lived in Hammond. Now she's referred to as a "Lacombe woman". Renita Menzies' charred remains were found in a car parked at a boat launch in Lacombe. She had a history of drug abuse. Coincidence?

    Also, for those not familiar with New Orleans, the Desire area is known for crime and drugs. The killer obviously thought leaving her body there would throw off LE by presenting a scenario where she was killed during a drug buy in a different jurisdiction.

    Christopher N. Eason, age 26, of 154xx Quick Blvd., Hammond, LA, was indicted with one count of second degree murder. Assistant District Attorney Don Wall is prosecuting the case.

    http://www.amitetoday.com/cops/21st-district-court-indictments-december-5-2014


    More details in this article. Eason was already incarcerated in Tangipahoa Parish on drug charges when the indictment came down.

    According to her sister, Kimberly, who was engaged, left home to go to the store, but never returned.

    Kim was raised in Lacombe but had recently moved to nearby Hammond.

    Anything else on this case? There was a Kim Bowman who testified in the trial of a drug dealer...just started looking at Kim's case so no idea if it's connected.

    Reminds me an awful lot of Jessica Chambers case in Mississippi.

    Nothing more that I can find in the news.

    Regarding Jessica Chambers, the timing is coincidental, a month apart. Kim, however, died from a gunshot wound, while poor Jessica was burned alive. Such a terrible injustice and tragedy for both young women and their families. At least one murder (Kim's) appears to be solved. Hopefully Jessica's killer also will be brought to justice soon.
