Terrilynn Monnette, Missing New Orleans School Teacher Has Been Located Deceased

monnette-missing

June 7, 2013 UPDATE — Sadly, 26-year-old Terri Monnette has been found deceased 98 days after she was last seen leaving Parlay’s Bar, a local bar in New Orleans, Louisiana.

For months Slidell police, family, friends and volunteers have been scouring City Park and the surrounding areas looking for the young woman and this past Saturday she was located by Mark Michaud, the leader of the Slidell Police Department’s dive team.

Michaud, 49, had gone to Bayou St. John on his 17-foot boat during his free time. Scanning the waters with a portable sonar device, he found a submerged car close to a bridge at the corner of Harrison Avenue and Wisner Boulevard.  He then grabbed his gear, dove in and saw a black Honda Accord – the same make and model as Monnette’s car. He then studied the license plate. It read, “WUN 494.”

It was Monnette’s car, and instead was a badly decomposed body in the driver’s seat — It was Terri Lynn Monnette. Cause of death: Drowning.

Rewind to 98 days: It was a Saturday night, March 2, 2013 and the West Bank elementary school teacher had been hanging out at Parlay’s bar in Eastern New Orleans. She had been drinking and having a good time with friends and co-workers and was what some described as intoxicated. At one point she was seen resting in her vehicle. Witnesses and surveillance cameras then saw  her speaking to a man in the parking lot around 4AM. The cameras show the both of them going their separate ways. She disappeared shortly after taking a right out of Parlay’s parking lot.

It seemed that the vehicle was pointed the way Monnette would probably have been going on March 2 after she drove away from Parlay’s bar in the 800 block of Harrison Avenue about 5 a.m. — the last time anyone saw her.

03/11/13 UPDATE — Texas EquuSearch has been contacted and are now promoting Terrilynn’s missing case on their Web page. You can also download her missing poster and/or leave a donation. Your donation to Texas EquuSearch will be used for search missions, equipment, fuel, food, lodging for the Search Coordinators and expenses associated with the operation of their Mobile Command Center. Additionally, donations will be used for their day-to-day operating expenses.

Family, friends and concerned people in the community attended a prayer vigil last night at Wilson High School.

If you have any information you’re urged to please contact: Texas EquuSearch at (281) 309-9500, or the New Orleans Police Department (below).

Terrilynn Monnette, a 26-year-old West Bank school teacher, was last seen in the early hours of Saturday morning, March 2, 2013.

She had gone to Parlay’s bar in the 800 block of Harrison Avenue in the Lakeview section of Crescent City with friends on Friday night going into early Saturday morning. According to witnesses including some of her employees, she had been drinking and was seen having a good time with several friends. Some reports claim that she was intoxicated, which could have rendered her vulnerable.

An eyewitness told police that he saw the missing teacher with an unidentified man in the bar’s parking lot, according to information on the missing person’s flyer that Monnette’s family has been distributing.

The manager of Parlay’s bar handed over video surveillance to police which show Monnette with an unidentified male walking to her car at approximately 3:45AM in the Parlay’s parking lot. They were in the car for a little while and then the man is seen getting out and going into his own vehicle. Both cars are seen driving off in opposite directions. This was the last spotting of Monnette and she hasn’t been seen or heard from since.

The bar’s general manager confirmed the eyewitnesses account, telling WGNO that the two talked in the parking lot “for a little while,” and that the bar’s video surveillance showed they left in separate cars. “He went one way, she went the other,”

Monnette’s mother also told police that between 3:30AM – 4AM, she had went to her vehicle to sleep because she had consumed alcohol beverages and didn’t want to drive under the influence.

Family and friends became immediately concerned and say it is uncharacteristic of Monnette to be away this long without contacting anybody. They have been searching and distributing missing person flyers with her photo and description on it. The posters have also been spreading threw out social media websites, especially Facebook.

Loved ones and volunteers gathered at Parlay’s bar at 7:30AM Thursday (03/07/13) to search. They walked through City Park banging sticks in bushes and searching through shrubs, hoping to find some sign of Monnette. City Park is a large park consisting of many yards, and searching will likely take more than a day.

Toni Enclade, the mother of Terrilynn Monnette, is adamant that her daughter will return to her safely.

“I really believe that she’s OK,” Enclade said with a firm nod of her head, as others searched the high grass near the City Park driving range behind her. “I’m very hopeful.”

Although hopeful, tension is rising and many are anxious.

Police are not only searching for Monnette, but are also trying to locate her 2012 three-door black Honda Accord with Louisiana license plate # WUN494.

Murder Victim Dubbed “Princess Jane Doe” Found In Blairstown Cemetary in the Summer of 1982

nj_jane_doe

These are three seperate composite sketches which were created by different artist to give an idea of what the unidentified Jane Doe may have looked like alive. Both sketches are an approximate description based on the deceased victim’s physical features and shouldn’t be used as the sole basis of identifying the victim.

princess-doe-unidentified

The identity of a young female discovered in Warren County, New Jersey on July 15, 1982 remains unknown over three decades later.

The unidentified female was given the name “Princess Jane Doe” after she was discovered in a wooded area in Blairstown Cemetary, Route 94, NJ. She had been beaten to death and medical examiners conclude her estimated time of death could have been up to several weeks prior to discovery. They also determined she wasn’t pregnant nor did she ever give birth. She had no drugs in her system at the time of her homicide.

The community was horrified that something like this could happen so close to home and saddened when nobody came forward to claim the body so they came together and raised the funds to give Princess Doe a proper burial and gravestone.

So many years have gone by and many believe Princess Doe wasn’t from the area due to the fact that nobody knows who she is. It’s possible she may even be from another Country which would explain why, despite thousands of people threw out the United States seeing her case, her identity remains a mystery. However, a witness did come forward saying she knew Princess Doe and that she lived in Long Island, NY and was estranged from her family.

Lt. Stephen Speirs of the Warren Co. Prosecutor’s Office has investigated Princess Doe’s case close for many years and had hoped to solve the mystery by July, 2007, which would have been the 25th anniversary of the discovery. But it’s now passing the 30th anniversary with just as many unanswered questions as there was 30 years ago.

Physical description: A young Caucasian female between 14-20 years of age with a thin frame. Eye color is unknown. When she was found she was wearing red nail polish on her right hand but no polish on her left, almost as if she started painting her nails but didn’t get to finish. Her left ear has two piercings, her right ear has an unknown amount of piercings.

Case Details:

Date Body Found: 07/15/82
Estimated Date of Death: 07/11/82
Estimated Age: 14 – 20 years (victim would be in her 40’s if she was still living today)

Weight: 90 – 100 pounds
Height: between 5’2” / 5’4”

Northern New Jersey residents, Melissa Phelam and Kim Maleyonok set up the fund campaign to help the parents of Nick Cianciotto with funeral expenses. They had set up the fund so that a check will be issued directly to Schimanski’s father, Clyde Schimanski Jr.

If you would like to donate to the family members, please click Memory of Nick Cianciotto to be directed to the campaign page, which will end on February 9, 2013

Maleyonok and Phelam had also set up a fund titled in Loving Memory of Clyde Schimanski, which reached it’s financial goal, so has since been shut down, with the website reading “as enough money has been collected to pay the funeral expenses of Clyde, we have shut down the page.”

According to NJ.COM, the fund was set-up Tuesday and by 8p.m. that night, had raised about $75. A little more than an hour later, it was up to nearly $750. By midnight, about $4,400 and continued to blossom.

Loved ones gathered at a local church where they were told the devastating news that both teenagers were recovered from Lake Budd.

‘I lost my son,’ Laurie Halloran, the mother of missing 15-year-old Clyde told the New York Daily News. ‘I feel numb.’

Family and friend’s also gathered at the lake to comfort each other and mourn the two losses.

Friends and family gathered at Budd Lake (pictured) to comfort one another

Students at Mount Olive Highschool told CBS reporters that Nick Cianciotto had spoken about Ice fishing on Monday morning, hours before he tragically fell through the icy lake.

“It is with great sadness that I announce the deaths of Nicholas Michael Cianciotto III and Clyde Frederick Schimanski III, both of whom were 15 years old. The young men were deeply loved by their families and friends. The entire Morris County community mourns their loss,” Prosecutor Fredric M. Knapp said in a statement on Wed Jan 9, 2013.

New Jersey Mayor

Mount Olive Mayor Robert Greenbaum has been regularly leaving updates regarding the tragedy and letting the families know that the whole town is grieving with them.

“I have condolences for the family that lost their child today,” Greenbaum said in a news conference earlier today. “The entire community grieves with them.”

01/08/13 UPDATE – MOUNT OLIVE, NJ — A body was located in Budd Lake earlier today, after hours of searching for two missing teens who fell through the ice at Budd Lake in Mount Olive, New Jersey.

Authorities haven’t publically identified which victim had been recovered and are waiting for a positive identification.

Meanwhile, the father of one of the victims, Clyde Schimanski, who shares the same name as his son Clyde Schimanski Jr, told Star-Ledger: ‘Imagine screaming and knowing you’re going to die. He died a horrible death.’ — He went on to say his son’s death was part of God’s plan. ‘God works in mysterious ways,’  he said.

The mother of Nick Cianciotto had said she told her son to “be care” as he headed out to Budd Lake

NJ Mayor Robert Greenbaum has been posted about the tragedy on Facebook, saying he believes the victims had gone to Budd Lake to ice-fish. He later posted an update warning the public that the chances of a successful recovery was unlikely.

‘Once again I am sad to report that we likely lost two young adults in Mount Olive this evening. May God bless their families and help ease their pain.’ he said.

It appears everyone has the same assumption, with one online-user even creating a memorial page earlier today titled  In Memory Of Clyde Schimanski & Nick Cianciotto which has already gained 1,466 ‘likes’ to honor the two boys.

Comments and posts on Nick Cianciotto’s Facebook page show that he was a typical, outgoing teenager who enjoyed hanging out friends. It also listed the Mount Olive Highschool student as currently in a relationship.

The Facebook of Clyde Schimanski is set to private but shows the teen smiling in a photo with a woman standing besides him.

01/08/13 MOUNT OLIVE, NJ — Search for two missing Mount Olive teenagers who fell through an icy lake last night called off

Firefighters, police, and cold water divers continue to search Budd Lake for two missing teenagers who fell through thin ice while at Budd Lake in Northern New Jersey last night.

budd_lake_search

Rescuers have been searching Budd Lake since last night after two missing Northern New Jersey teenagers fell through the ice

According to reports, Nick Ciancotto, 14 and Clyde Schimanski, 15, rode their bikes to Budd Lake early yesterday evening. At approximately 6:30pm the ice beneath Ciancotto started to crack and he shouted for help. Shimanski then rode his bike onto the ice to try to save his friend and after riding a good distance into the lake, the two fell through.

Witnesses heard frantic screams shouting “help me, don’t let me die!” — they rushed to the scene and noticed the two teen’s frantically struggling. One of the witnesses attempted to walk on the ice and save the boys but when he reached about 700ft he heard the ice beneath him starting to crack and rushed off.  The hysterical boys were pleading to the witnesses for help, saying they didn’t want to die and the witnesses were consoling them and let them know rescuers were on their way.

William Hardy, a 25-year-old local resident who lives in a house off the lake told Star-Ledger that he was out on his front porch with his house mate when he heard the panicked screams and immediately dialed 9-1-1, grabbed a flashlight and  rushed down to the lake where he spotted a blue light which quickly sank beneath the water. He believes it was a cellphone belonging to one of the victims.

First crew rescuers showed up and by this point, the teens were nowhere in sight. They’ve been searching the freezing lake since, breaking through over 100 feet of ice but have found no sign of the teenagers thus far and today authorities were treating the search as a recovery rather than a rescue.

Shortly after the incident, the Mayor of Mount Olive, Robert Greenbaum posted a statement on Facebook about the tragedy and saying that he believed the two teenagers, who were both students at Mount Olive High School, went to the lake to ice fish. He went on to say that “The lake is not guarded in any way.”

The father of Clyde Schimanski is holding out hope although he doesn’t believe the outcome will be successful.

‘It hurts my heart. Until they pull him out, I’ll…hold tight. I want to know they find him.‘ said Mr. Schimanski.

A New Jersey State Police helicopter flew overhead shining lights into the dark waters of the lake before the search was eventually called off.
