Jaren Lockhart was murdered and dismembered and one of the suspects in this gruesome crime is now free. You read that right. Margaret Sanchez is now free to walk the very same streets as you, so if you're an exotic dancer in the New Orleans area you might want to avoid tweeker-looking women who want to lure you away for "fun."
It's really outrageous that the DA rejected the charge she was facing of harboring an absconded sex offender (Terry Speaks), but even more outrageous that she never faced charges for the murder of Jaren Lockhart. It's more than obvious that she and Speaks had some kind of connection to the slain woman, and now she's out and about tasting sweet freedom.
Seeing as though these were the last people to be around Lockhart, it's mind-blowing that neither one of them have faced charges. This just seems like a shoddy investigation all the way around. Sanchez is probably a high flight risk too.
