KENNER - The police chief of a New Orleans suburb says he hopes his department can bring closure to the case of a Bourbon Street dancer whose body parts washed ashore in Mississippi in 2012.
But Kenner Police Chief Steve Caraway said Tuesday there is still no break in the case of 22-year-old Jaren Lockhart as his department prepares to take the lead in the investigation.
Authorities in Mississippi's Hancock County said Monday they are turning the case over to Kenner investigators.
Lockhart was last seen alive leaving a Bourbon Street strip club with two people in June 2012.
Caraway noted that Kenner officials have been involved in the investigation since the beginning. Their early work included the search of the home of one of the last people seen with Lockhart.
