Audrey Moate


31 year old White Female : Went Missing on 11-24-1956 from near Laplace Louisiana..


http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/2323dfla.html


Audrey Moate was last seen at Frenier Beach near Laplace Louisiana on 11-24-1956..


In the morning of 11-24-1956 a hunter & his son were hunting in the woods along the shore of Lake Pontchartrain when they saw a blue four sedan parked five yards from the water...


They spotted a man & a woman in the backseat...


3 hours later another hunter noticed the sedan with a man in a strange position in the back seat...


The hunter did not stop to investigate...


At 10.30 the next day the first hunters came across the car in the same position & found the man they had surprised the day before shot dead in the car...


The woman was nowhere to be seen...


On the ground were the partial contents of a woman's purse--female clothing & shoes were found on the floor of the car...


The car keys were still in the ignition..


The man was identified as Thomas Hotard 46...


There was a small hole in the rear window of the car indicating that a shotgun was pressed against the glass when it was fired...


Hotard had been shot in the back..


Leading from the car toward the woods were prints of bare feet small enough to be a woman's...


The prints were spaced far apart indicating the woman had been running...


Mingled with these were the tracks of a man's boots...


Five feet away from the scene of the crime was a place where it looked like a scuffle had taken place & on the ground another set of car keys were found. ..


The footprints ended at a road that leads to the main highway & there investigators found a single tire track possibly from a motorcycle...


There were no other physical evidence...


Audrey's car was later located at the cafe where she had met up with Hotard who was married...


The keys found at the crime scene fit the ignition...


There has been many rumors--speculations & even confessions in the case...


However Audrey has never been located & Thomas Hotard's killer never identified...
