NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — New information about the disappearance of a New Orleans woman has surfaced.
44-year-old Becky Hendrix, who was reported missing in January, was allegedly found dead in her car according to her mother Karen Hendrix.
Karen Hendrix told WGNO that she was found dead in her car Thursday night in the parking lot of the University Medical Center.
The family of Becky Hendrix believes foul play was involved. Spring Lemley, Hendrix’s sister said she is devastated.
“I was hoping it would be a miracle, instead of complete devastation.”
Lemely added, “I should have been there should have done something and now I can’t do anything.”
Two weeks ago the New Orleans Police department named 43-year-old Michal Hearty and 56-year-old Etienne Defelice as people of interest in her disappearance.
Hendrix’s family said she was living with Hearty when she disappeared.
“She has told me it was scary living there, that it wasn’t what she expected,” said Lemely.
Hearty was friends with Benjamin Beale, the man accused of murdering and dismembering the body of Julia Dardar in January which was around the same time Hendrix went missing.
Becky Hendrix’s sister said that it is “too coincidental.”
The family said they want answers. They will remember Becky Hendrix as a loving person.
“She was somebody who made people feel good about themselves and it’s not good.”
The autopsy will be on Monday and a memorial service will be held in Pearl river for her on May 6, according to the family.
