Before Jaren Lockhart whose body parts washed ashore in South Mississippi and before Margaret Sanchez became a prime suspect, Sanchez did an interview with ABC about another woman she knew who met a similar fate.

Addie Hall, like Lockhart, was killed and dismembered. In 2006, Hall's body parts were found in pots sitting on a stove in an apartment she shared with her boyfriend, Zachary Bowen.

Police were led to the grisly scene after Bowen jumped to his death and investigators found a suicide note sending them to the apartment in the French Quarter.

Detective Tom Morovich Jr. with the New Orleans Police Department gives details of the case in the show.

"There was like a diary with some notes in it," Morovich recalled. "When the book was picked up, they realized there were notes in there from Zach with a first hand depiction of what he did."

Hall and Bowen were both bartenders who made national headlines in 2005 following Hurricane Katrina. The New York Times reported Hall would flash police officers to make sure they would patrol the couple's home.

The advanced clips we obtained from ABC do not reveal how Sanchez knew Hall or what she says.

Hancock County investigators will be watching the program to figure out if anything Sanchez says about Hall's murder and dismemberment provides any clues about Jaren Lockhart's death.

At this time, Margaret Sanchez has not been charged in Lockhart's murder, but investigators are calling her a "prime suspect."

Sanchez is currently being held at the Tangipahoa jail under a $35,000 bond for harboring a sex offender and minor traffic offenses.

Final Witness airs on WLOX Wednesday at 9pm.
