    Boston city leaders met Tuesday afternoon to discuss public safety in bars and nightclubs following the death of a mother who was abducted following a night out in the city's Theater District.

    The kidnapping and death of 23-year-old Jassy Correia devastated her friends and family and shocked the community. She went missing after she and her friends went out to Venu Nightclub on Feb. 24 to celebrate her birthday.

    Her body was discovered on Feb. 28 in the trunk of her alleged killer's car in Delaware. Louis Coleman, 32, was arrested and charged with kidnapping, resulting in death immediately after the discovery.

    Boston Police Department Commissioner William Gross was among the city leaders at Tuesday's meeting in South Boston.
