Indianapolis: The case of missing Indiana woman is yet to be solved. The woman who went missing after dropping her pets at her parents’ home in Indiana was untraced for around twenty-four hours. Later, her body was found in mysterious circumstances.
The missing Indiana woman, who worked as a beautician, was reportedly found dead on a sandbar in the Flatrock river in Columbus, Ind., Saturday morning. She had been missing for more than a day.
Jackie Watts was slated to fly to Washington DC with her husband and to prepare for her journey the 33-woman went to drop her pets to her mother’s home. While she returned from there, she never made it home.
Officials suggest that they do not suspect foul play in her death. A press conference has been scheduled for Monday at noon.
Reports suggest that the woman was an animal lover, who loved them and even took care of very ill canines. “Jackie was always taking home the really sick bunnies that she could nurture back to health, and if that wasn’t possible, she would many times keep them to their end,” a post on IndyClaw’s Facebook page read.
Before the discovery of her body following a massive manhunt, Columbus Police had reported on Facebook that they were searching for Watts. They wrote, “Columbus police officers are currently searching for a woman reported missing by her family earlier this afternoon. Missing is Jacqueline Watts, 33 years of age. She is 5’5″ tall and 110 pounds. She has blonde hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing black stretch pants and a gray shirt. Her vehicle was located in the 2300 block of Riverside Drive in Columbus…Law enforcement officers and police K-9’s are currently searching the immediate area.

Despite finding her body, her case is yet to be solved. Columbus police are still investigating Watts’ death and have not released any more details. They are, however, warning people to be mindful of what posts they make on social media speculating on the specifics of the case. Jackie Watts cause of death remains unclear. This is the reason the case is yet to be closed.
