NEW ORLEANS (AP) -

Investigators in Hancock County, Miss., are working new leads in the death of a French Quarter dancer who was gruesomely slaughtered in June. Jaren Lockhart went missing on June 6 after leaving work at Temptations Gentlemen's Club on Bourbon Street.

Days later, her severed body parts washed ashore in Bay St. Louis, Miss. Two people were detained - 28-year-old Margaret Sanchez and 39-year-old Terry Speaks. However, no formal charges in Lockhart's death were made against the couple. Speaks was taken to North Carolina where he faces sex offender charges unrelated to the murder investigation. Sanchez was released after being held for more than a month in Tangipahoa Parish.

Now, the lead investigator tells a news station in New Orleans that people with new information are coming forward as fear and shock wear off.
