Police believe that beautiful Instagram model Jassy Correia was murdered by a man she met at the club, who they claim may have cut her into pieces to dispose of her body.
Yesterday police arrested a man in connection with the disappearance of 23-year-old Jassy. The young mom, who was also a social media influencer, went missing after celebrating her birthday at club in Boston last weekend.
Jassy was last seen alive leaving the Venue Nightclub in Boston in the company of a male at about 12:15am on Feb. 24. Police say that man is Louis D. Coleman III.
“Louis D. Coleman III has been located and placed under arrest in Delaware,” police said shortly after 5 p.m. Thursday. “A body has been recovered and we are awaiting a positive identification at this time. The cause and manner of death are pending. This remains an active and ongoing, multi-agency, multi-jurisdictional investigation. Additional information will be provided when available.”
Delaware Online reported that Delaware State Police spotted Coleman’s vehicle at about 2 p.m. Thursday and — after a brief pursuit — pulled it over on Interstate 95 in Stanton. The news site reported that a body was found in the car, which was later confirmed by Providence Police Chief Col. Hugh Clements Jr. at a Thursday evening press conference.
Local TV news station WPRI reports that police have surveillance video showing Louis carrying an unconscious Jassy into his apartment. The footage then shows Louis leaving the building carrying 2 suitcases.
Police believe that Jassy's body parts were inside the suitcases.
Clements’s press conference was held outside of the apartment building Coleman lives in at 95 Chestnut St. in Providence. Police were seen searching a dumpster at the building, and Clements said they carried out a search warrant in Coleman’s home.
In the photo released by police, Coleman is wearing what appears to be a Raytheon lanyard.
Our prayers are with Jassy's family.
