Jackson was last seen in Santa Ana, California on October 3, 2013. She lived in Las Vegas, Nevada, but traveled to Santa Ana by bus for a court date to answer to prostitution charges. She never made her court appearance and has never been heard from again.
Investigators believe Jackson's disappearance is connected to the disappearances of Josephine Vargas and Martha Anaya. All three women frequented the same half-mile section of First Street, between Grand Avenue and the the 55 freeway, all of them were sex workers, and they disappeared within weeks of each other. In April 2014, Franc Cano and Steven Dean Gordon were arrested and charged with the murders of Jackson, Anaya and Vargas, as well as the murder of 21-year-old Jarrae Nykkole Estepp, whose body was found in an Anaheim, California recycling plant. Photos of Eastepp, Cano, Gordon are posted below this case summary. Both defendants have prior records for sex offenses against children, and are registered sex offenders. They were wearing GPS ankle monitoring bracelets at the time of their disappearances and weren't supposed to be around each other.
Foul play is suspected in Jackson's case due to the circumstances involved.
