NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A Mississippi sheriff's investigator hopes surveillance video from Bourbon Street in New Orleans will provide clues about the death of a strip club dancer whose dismembered body washed ashore on the Gulf Coast.

Hancock County Chief Investigator Glen Grannon said Sunday that 22-year-old Jaren Lockhart reported for work Tuesday night and left early Wednesday. Her torso was found late Thursday in Bay St. Louis. Other body parts were found later in coastal Harrison County.

It remained unclear where Lockhart was killed and dismembered and where the body parts were put in the water.

Lockhart had been living at a New Orleans motel. New Orleans police said she had been reported missing last week by her boyfriend.
