FBI releases video in effort to ID witnesses in Boston mom’s kidnapping

61

FBI Boston(BOSTON) -- The FBI and Boston police are looking to identify four witnesses in connection with the kidnapping of 23-year-old Jassy Correia, a young mom who police say was killed after leaving a Boston nightclub.

The four people -- seen in the surveillance video from the early hours of Feb. 24 -- are not suspected of wrongdoing, the FBI said in a tweet Wednesday.

"We just really want to talk to them to find out if they have seen or overheard something that could help us bring some closure to Jassy’s family," Joseph Bonavolonta, special agent in charge of the FBI Boston Division, said in a statement.

Police did not elaborate on the witnesses' connection to the investigation.

The case began when Correia, a mother of a 2-year-old girl, disappeared early on Feb. 24 after leaving Boston's Venu Nightclub, where she was celebrating her birthday with friends, police said.

Days later, the suspect, Louis Coleman, 32, was pulled over on a Delaware road with Correia's body -- bound, bruised and naked -- in his trunk, prosecutors said.

Correia's apparent cause of death was blunt force trauma and strangulation, prosecutors said.

After Correia's disappearance, cameras showed Coleman arriving at his Providence, Rhode Island, apartment building and carrying a body from his car to his apartment, prosecutors said. Video also showed Coleman leaving his apartment with a suitcase that he hoisted into the trunk, prosecutors said.

Coleman was charged with federal interstate kidnapping resulting in death.

He has not entered a plea. An attorney for Coleman declined to comment on Wednesday.
