Wheel of Justice

NEW ORLEANS — Orleans District Attorney Jason Williams is hoping his new Cold Case Unit will find new leads in the Jessica Easterly case. He’s also hoping someone will come forward with information that solves the mystery. More details are available in the latest Wheel of Justice report.

Easterly went missing in August of 2019. About a week after her disappearance, her sister found Easterly’s body by some railroad tracks that were near her Lakeview home.

Easterly’s family members have been critical of the investigation into the case. Williams says that nobody could be satisfied with the case as long as the woman’s death remains unsolved.
