PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) – Just days after celebrating her 23rd birthday a mother last seen at a Boston nightclub was found dead in the car of a Providence man, according to Boston Police.

Police tracked down 32-year-old Louis Coleman III all the way to Delaware, where they eventually located his car on the highway and pulled him over, finding the body inside the vehicle.

The investigation led to his apartment inside a Chestnut Street building.

He was last seen on surveillance in the area before he was pulled over in Delaware.

The woman, Jassy Correia, was last seen leaving the Boston nightclub Venu with Coleman and getting into his car just after midnight Sunday, after she had been out celebrating her birthday.

Providence Police were tipped off by Boston investigators and conducted a search warrant at Coleman’s apartment.

They wouldn’t elaborate on what was found inside and only said that it was enough for probable cause.

They also wouldn’t say whether they believe Jassy was ever inside the building, calling it a complicated case involving Providence, Boston, Delaware and federal law enforcement.

In the photo of Coleman provided by Boston Police, he’s wearing a Raytheon Lanyard.

We contacted the company, which has a location in Portsmouth.

They said they are cooperating fully with the investigation.
