The Honda Accord belonging to teacher Terrilynn Monette, who has been missing since since early March, is pulled from a Bayou in New Orleans on Saturday.

 

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The Orleans Parish coroner's office says the body found inside a car pulled from a New Orleans bayou this weekend has been identified as missing teacher Terrilynn Monette, and that the cause of her death was drowning.

Coroner's investigator John Gagliano said Monday that dental records were used to identify Monette, who was 26 when she disappeared in early March.

Toxicology tests were pending.

The car was found and removed Saturday from Bayou St. John in New Orleans.

Monette was a Long Beach, Calif., native who moved to Louisiana to teach. She was last seen leaving a New Orleans bar not far from the bayou in the early morning hours of March 2. She would have had to cross the waterway to get home.
