UPDATE: 11/17/12

(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 says that people with new information are coming forward as fear and shock wear off.

NEW ORLEANS (AP)

- Two people held in a Louisiana jail are being questioned about the death of a Bourbon Street stripper whose body parts recently washed ashore on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
 
The Hancock County, Miss., Sheriff's Department said Wednesday the two were being held in Tangipahoa Parish on charges unrelated to 22-year-old Jaren Lockhart's death. They had not been charged with Lockhart's death.
 
Hancock investigators say the two are seen on a video from the club where Lockhart worked, and that they left with Lockhart early on June 6. They identified the woman as Margaret Sanchez.
 
Tangipahoa authorities confirmed a Margaret Sanchez of Kenner, La., was being held on a resisting an officer charge. A man with multiple aliases from the same address was booked with aggravated assault and on fugitive warrants.
