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.

    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.

    I am a good childhood friend of this missing person. Any help to get this investigation going again would be great. Her mother’s name is no longer under Eiffert , but Yvonne Ludwick. There are a lot of details lacking and unsure if they really gave any look into this. I was her best friend when she was dating the child’s father, joseph Lewis hill or Joe hill. He had her into drugs and isolated her from friends and family. Last I saw her was December 2002, when I was pregnant with my first child.
    My gut is he did not want the baby, she did, he set her up and they hid her body. There are so many stories about women wanting a fetus or the father hiring for kill. I doubt any effort was really given into it like it should have been. I to this day, still search the Internet in hopes of finding her close to her real name or just in posts from a friend of a friends page.

      Mandy, I’m so sorry for what you’ve had to endure in regards to your friend going missing. It sounds like she had a lot of bad messed up people in her life 😦 I didn’t know her but find solace in the fact that she had a friend who still to this day cares about her. I’m sure she loved you for that. We’d all be lucky to have a friend like you.
      Much love, cori
