captureHancock County investigators say while Terry Speaks and Margaret Sanchez aren’t saying much during questioning, Sanchez did vent over a Bourbon Street wedding she said she had with Speaks, a marriage that turned out not to be legit.

Detectives tell us Sanchez said she and Speaks were married earlier this year by a minister who also works as a doorman in Bourbon’s 300 block.

Cops who interviewed her said she was miffed when she later learned she wasn’t legally married.

Sanchez complained about having to pay the minister $100 dollars for the middle-of-the-street ceremony, deputies said.

According to investigators, the unofficial wedding took place in the same block where Jaren Lockhart worked.

Lockhart, Sanchez and Speaks were seen leaving Temptations night club last month days before Lockhart’s body parts washed ashore on Mississippi beaches.
