NEW ORLEANS - Authorities pulled a missing teacher's car from a New Orleans bayou Saturday and police said there was a decomposed body inside.
Authorities couldn't immediately say whether the body was Terrilyn Monette, who was last seen leaving a New Orleans bar not far from the bayou in the early morning hours of March 2. She would've had to cross the waterway to get home.
Monette was a Long Beach, Calif., native who moved to Louisiana to teach. Her family has been flying back and forth from California to look for her. They attended a prayer vigil Friday and appealed for FBI intervention, accusing the New Orleans Police Department of mishandling the case. The department has denied the accusations.
Monette's mother, Toni Enclade, was among the family members who came to the scene Saturday.

Since March ?

There's a job i wouldn't want :eek:
I know that area well. Mom in law used to live nearby. Bayou St. John is by City Park, some really nice neighborhoods. There are lots of little parking spots where folks park and fish. Live oaks with Spanish Moss and all.

"Leaving a bar." Very New Orleans... One on every corner, social center of the neighborhood.

Some O.U.I attempts can actually have fatal results to the drunk behind the wheel for a change. Tragic but a case of self inflicted injury.
