FBI, Boston police seek to identify 4 possible witnesses in the Jassy Correia case

Authorities said the four people are not suspected of any wrongdoing.

Authorities investigating the kidnapping and death of Jassy Correia are asking for the public’s help identifying four people they say could be potential witnesses in the case.

“The individuals are not suspected of any wrongdoing and are being sought as witnesses,” the FBI said in a statement Wednesday, which was accompanied by photos and video of the four individuals who were captured on surveillance video in the area of Tremont and Stuart streets in Boston around 2:15 a.m. on Feb. 24.

The FBI described the individuals as follows:

As seen in the video, the unknown male has facial hair and is wearing a dark jacket with a white undershirt and dark pants. Next to him is an unidentified female wearing a black dress with a dark green jacket and dark, knee-high boots. The unknown female next to her is pictured wearing a dark outfit with a tan jacket and black boots. The last female on the right is seen wearing a dark jacket over a multicolored dress, with knee-high, black boots. All four are believed to be in their 20s, have light skin, and dark hair.

Correia, a mother of a 2-year-old daughter living in Lynn, went out to celebrate her birthday on Feb. 23 with a group of friends in Boston’s Theater District. She was last seen alive leaving a Downtown nightclub — her dead body was found in the trunk of a car in Delaware on Feb. 28.

Surveillance video showed Correia getting into a car with a man authorities later identified as Louis D. Coleman III. The 32-year-old from Providence, Rhode Island, was arrested in Delaware and is facing one federal count of kidnapping resulting in death, a charge that carries a mandatory life sentence and is eligible for the death penalty. He is also facing multiple charges in connection to the case in Rhode Island.

Police say they have surveillance video that shows Coleman carrying the 23-year-old’s body into his Providence apartment from his car in the hours after he met her.

Anyone with information about the case is being asked to contact the FBI at 857-386-2000 or submit a tip online.
