The murder and dismemberment of Jaren Lockhart is still fresh on the minds of residents of New Orleans and Hancock County, Mississippi. That's probably because of the latest updates, which are creating an ominous feeling over this entire case. This doesn't seem like it was necessarily a crime committed by people who were close with the woman, because another stripper has come forward with claims that are downright scary. What's more, there are witness reports stemming from Mississippi that may shed light on the slain stripper's last moments alive.
Margaret Sanchez and Terry Speaks were apprehended on Tuesday night in connection to the disappearance and murder of Jaren Lockhart, whose dismembered torso and other body parts washed ashore in Mississippi just days after her boyfriend reported her missing. It's being extensively reported that they are only being referred to as "persons of interest" in the slaying of the stripper, but it's really looking more and more like they are far more than that. That's because another dancer has come forward with claims that Sanchez and Speaks approached her at the joint next to the club which employed Lockhart.
Sheila Nand is a dancer at Stiletto's and she had some downright disturbing things to say about Margaret Sanchez and her boyfriend Terry Speaks. She claims that Margaret approached her while she was on stage and offered her $700 to come home with her and Speaks. It was already speculated upon in this article that the slain stripper Lockhart could have been entrapped in a prostitution transaction gone wrong, but this claim just absolutely takes the case.
"That's the fishy thing about it is when she approached me on the stage, she asked me if I wanted to go home with her and her boyfriend as a third party as a 'gift' to him, you know," said Nand.
Indeed it seems that these two were on the prowl that night and Jaren Lockhart ended up in the wrong place at the wrong time to participate in money-making ventures outside of her place of employment. It's extremely rare for a romantic couple to participate in thrill killing of a sexual nature like this, but it does in fact happen. Karla Homolka is a notorious example of just that.
It's also a possibility that Lockhart was alive in Mississippi, as opposed to being disposed of in the state bordering her home. That's because there are witness reports claiming to see the tattooed blond in the company of Sanchez and Speaks. If this is the case, it's possible that she was either abducted after leaving the club, or she went willingly across state lines with the couple to participate in whatever it was she was offered.
