BOSTON, Mass. (WLNE) – Investigators are seeking to identify four individuals who may have information related to the kidnapping of Jassy Correia in February.

Correia was kidnapped in Boston on February 24th, and later found dead in the trunk of a vehicle in Delaware. The driver of that vehicle, Louis Coleman III, is facing federal charges in connection with her death. 

A FBI spokesperson said the individuals are not suspected of any wrongdoing and are being sought as witnesses.

The FBI and Boston Police Department released video Wednesday depicting four individuals that investigators said were in the area of Tremont Street in the early morning of February 24th and may have witnessed the kidnapping.

The individuals shown in the surveillance video are described as:

  • An unknown male with facial hair, wearing a dark jacket with a white undershirt and dark pants
  • An unidentified female wearing a black dress with a dark green jacket and dark, knee-high boots
  • An unknown female next to her is pictured wearing a dark outfit with a tan jacket and black boots
  • A female on the right is seen wearing a dark jacket over a multicolored dress, with knee-high, black boots

 

All four individuals are believed to be in their 20s and have light skin and dark hair.

“We’re asking the public to take a close look at these images to see if they can help us identify these people because we believe they may have information that could enhance our investigation,” said FBI Special Agent Joseph R. Bonavolonta. “We want to emphasize that these folks are not suspected of any wrongdoing. We just really want to talk to them to find out if they have seen or overheard something that could help us bring some closure to Jassy’s family.”

A social media campaign, including social media advertisements will run in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island in coming months.

Anyone with information regarding the individuals is asked to contact the FBI Boston Division’s Violent Crimes Task Force at 857-386-2000. Tips can also be electronically submitted at tips.fbi.gov.
