A Rhode Island man was arrested yesterday in connection with the Boston kidnapping and disappearance of 23-year-old Jassy Correia. Yesterday afternoon, just after 2:00, Louis D. Coleman III was located by Delaware State Police in Newport, Delaware. After a brief chase down I-95 SB, law enforcement from across New Castle County were able to corner Coleman at the Churchmans Road exit. After Coleman was taken into custody, troopers searched the vehicle and found a body in the trunk, which has not yet been identified.  According to court documents, Coleman is wanted for kidnapping, refusal to report a death with intent to conceal a crime, and mutilation of a dead human body. He’s now being held without bail at Gander Hill pending transfer by Rhode Island law enforcement.
