Anyone following this Jessica Durning death in NOLA & petition to force an investigation?
Change.org "Requesting D.A. Jason Williams to investigate the death of Jessica Easterly Durning"

This is another great example of incompetence or malfeasance by the NOPD and its going to make your blood boil as you read how this case was handled.

"*February 2, 2021: The coroner released Jessica to us, due to lack of contact with her husband Justin. My sister spent 530 days in the morgue!! My sister is HOME!!"

re: Anyone following this Jessica Durning death in NOLA & petition to force an investigation?
* August 22, 2019: Jessica's sisters Amanda and Audra, along with their cousin Doug, went to New Orleans to talk to detectives. Before meeting with detectives, they decided to look around Jessica's Lakeview neighborhood to scout out places, so they could organize a future search party. While looking around the streets of Kenilworth and Orleans, they found Jessica's body, just 2.5 blocks from her house. They called the police and Jessica’s body was picked up by the coroner.

*September 1, 2019: Alabama police take swab of Mrs. Schmitt’s (Jessica's mother) DNA to send to New Orleans Police. NOPD says they cannot begin an investigation until the body's identification has been confirmed through DNA. Alabama police mail DNA to NOPD.

*September 2, 2019: Justin finally calls Jessica's parents for the first time since her disappearance.

*October 2019: It is discovered that when NOPD received Mrs. Schmitt’s DNA, NOPD placed it on a desk without sending it to the lab. Reason given: "No one knew where it went."

This delays confirmation of identity, which delays investigation for Jessica.

*November 8, 2019: Official confirmation received that the DNA from Jessica’s mother matched the body found. It is, in fact, Jessica.

*December 2019: Justin creates two Go Fund Me accounts asking for help to pay for Jessica's funeral. One is under Jessica's legal name and the other is under a name used for their adult content: Vivianne. Justin says on the GoFundMe accounts: "If you donate, you will receive exclusive pics, videos, lingerie and even shoes."

*January 24, 2020: Jessica's step father (Rick Schmitt) and sister (Audra) go to New Orleans to meet with detectives. They are told this is now considered a "cold case".


*January 31, 2020: Coroner’s autopsy report is released. Jessica suffered a fractured nose, broken jaw, broken rib and a broken C4 vertebra (neck).

*March 15, 2020: A couple in the Lakeview neighborhood contacts Audra and tells her that they found Jessica's ID card and blanket. Audra calls detective and tells him what the couple found just 15 yards from where they found Jessica's body 7 months earlier. Detective says he wants to talk to the couple about where they found items.

*April 7, 2020: Audra calls Lakeview couple to follow up. The couple tells Audra that NOBODY has contacted them, nor has there been any police presence where they found ID and blanket.

*April 14, 2020: Audra files formal complaint with the Public Integrity Bureau for "Failing to Properly Investigate the death of Jessica Easterly Durning”.

*August 6, 2020: Finally heard back from the Public Integrity Bureau.( 4 months after filing the formal complaint, even though several phone calls and messages were left) Talked to E. Crayton. Informed that an investigation is being conducted for "not properly investigating”

Clown show

The husband killed her (allegedly). NOPD knows it but they are too incompetent to build a case. A total shite show is right.

NOLA is basically Zimbabwe at this point.

Jessica’s husband has elected to not speak to authorities without an attorney, and we are still waiting for an attorney to reach out and talk with detectives.


So in NOLA, as long as your attorney doesn't call the detectives back, you're good

Might as well not even have a detective unit. Seems like any average joe on here could have pieced this together.

The only justice this family will get for their daughter is to give $5k to a New Orleans East gang to ensure that real justice is properly done.

Just saying, cases don't become cold in Orleans in a matter of months. I won't post the policy here, but it ain't that. So the time line has some embellishment.

Sounds like the family should get in touch with Woody Overton and turn someone’s sugar into shite...

This sucks all around. It wouldn’t surprise me if the cops were in on it given how this is being handled.

I’ll say this from experience, you can give cops a suspect, evidence and they still won’t do a damn thing. They really don’t care about solving crime and putting bad people behind bars. They are just there to get paid and feel powerful and in control.

Oh yeah, they’ll write you a speeding ticket. You know what they don’t like, when you show up to fight the ticket.

Looks like the petition had some effect. WDSU DA has agreed to re-investigate the murder

That is good to hear. I ended up reading the entire web sleuths post about this case after this was posted Monday. I’m generally on the side of police, but the lack of investigation here is mind blowing.

Sad case. Look like it is indifference rather than ineptness.
