Select It Sunday: Ashley Eiffert

This week’s Select It Sunday is Ashley Marie Eiffert, chosen by Ashley’s mom. This tiny (under five feet tall) nineteen-year-old disappeared from New Orleans on January 9, 2003. She was last seen arguing with someone on her cell phone. She left her vehicle behind, but it was reportedly broken anyway. Ashley has two tattoos and she was seven months pregnant.

Ashley’s mother told me she’s got a Facebook page, but I can’t find it. I wish I could find out more about her case. Hopefully her mother can provide me more info. I wonder how much attention the New Orleans police have given it; I’ve heard terrible things about that police department, and then of course Hurricane Katrina trashing the city two years later can’t have helped matters.

If Ashley is still alive, she’d be 34 now. Her child would be 14 this month.

    I lived on the same block from which she disappeared from 2007 until 2011. good neighborhood for the most part (except a man who lived across the street got caught selling meth or something crazy) but, like everywhere in new orleans, was pretty close to the ‘hood. not too far away from the lake, either. she’s been gone a long time, but i hope her mother can find some closure.

      I seriously considered applying to Tulane when I was looking at colleges. It seemed like a great college and a great college town. Then I found out Tulane didn’t air-condition their dorms and I was like no thanks! It’s just as well, given they had to close the school for a year in 2005 after Katrina. Some of their students got evacuated/transferred to Hendrix, where I wound up going to school.

    Who’s the baby daddy? That’s my first thought. She lkely was arguing with him.

      Did LE check her cell phone record ?

    There is a “Help Find Ashley Eiffert” Facebook page that comes up in a google search but when you click on it you get an error message that says “The link you followed may have expired, or the Facebook Page may only be visible to an audience you’re not in.”

    I feel like there are a lot of lacking details. As marsyao said – were phones records checked that would tell who she was talking to. Was the baby’s father (If known ) questioned. Did her friend hear what the argument was about?

    What a sad sad case. Hate when there are unborn babies involved.
