The suspects in the slaying of Jaren Lockhart seem to be familiar with the dismemberment of human beings. That makes it hard not to wonder if the two have done this before. While police are searching phone records of the slain New Orleans dancer, they're trying to get footage of a crime show which featured Margaret Sanchez in regards to a friend of hers who suffered the very same fate as Lockhart. It also doesn't help the way these people look with Terry Speaks using an alias that matches the name of a famous painter known for depicting dismembered bodies.
Could these similarities be more than coincidence? It's been a little over six weeks since the dismembered torso and other assorted parts belonging to Jaren Lockhart washed ashore in Mississippi, and since then this case seems to be crawling at a snail's pace. Hopefully officials in Louisiana have all their ducks in a row with this case because it's going so slow, it's just hard to believe that they really even have any evidence against these people.
Margaret Sanchez and Terry Speaks have, so far, been uncooperative as far as this current investigation is going. It seems that neither one of them want to even be remotely helpful in giving police information on what happened to Lockhart. That in and of itself makes them both look guilty as hell.
Investigative officials in Louisiana are obviously having a rough month between this case and the possible abduction and murder of Mickey Shunick. Fortunately they've gotten the suspect in that case as well, which eliminates the possibility that the two suspects in this case are responsible. That's a relief at least, but could these two have other victims anyway?
