    Tashaun Jackson (31) was found deceased in a remote area

    https://www.wftv.com/news/local/sear...rday/919318943

    Cocoa police are actively searching for a missing mother of four who hasn?t been home since Saturday, and her family is making an urgent plea for help.

    On Wednesday, the family of 31-year-old Tashaun Jackson made an impassioned plea for the Cocoa mother's return.

    Jackson has four children ranging in age from 1 to 11.

    Officers said Jackson hasn't been seen since she took a short walk to a 7-Eleven on Dixon Boulevard.

    ?What we're concerned about now is her return,? Smith said. ?However she's returned to us rescued or recovered we just need her home.?

    Relatives told Channel 9 that she walked to the convenience store to buy milk for her 1-year-old daughter. They said she left her purse and ID at home, signaling that she clearly intended to return

    ?We're looking at every aspect of this case including phones and video,? said Cocoa police Chief Mike Cantaloupe. ?We're just trying to put the pieces together and we'll continue working on it.?

    Jackson's family said just last week she gave a deposition in a criminal case where she was the victim of a burglary and an attempted sexual battery. That case is pending.


    "Detectives have spoken to numerous witnesses and have been attempting to establish an accurate timeline of her last known movements," police spokeswoman Yvonne Martinez said.

    Anyone with information about Jackson's whereabouts is asked to call Crimeline at 800-423-8477. Crime Stoppers is now offering a $1,000 reward for information regarding her disappearance.

    A clerk working at the 7-Eleven on Dixon Boulevard in Cocoa where a missing mother of four was last seen Saturday said the woman got a strange phone call shortly before her disappearance from an unknown man.

    Tashuan Jackson, 31, has been missing since Saturday afternoon, and Cocoa police are working it as a missing persons investigation.

    "I was the last person to talk to Tashaun,” Asia Tabor said. "She told me she did receive a random phone call, and she did not know who it was. It was some guy, and they told her to meet him at 7-Eleven.”

    Tabor said Jackson left the convenience store after a few minutes alone, and Tabor noticed a car in the parking lot drive off around the same time.

    "As soon as she hit the corner to where I could not see her, that car pulled out, and that was the last thing,” Tabor said.

    Tabor said she spoke with Cocoa police detectives about what happened.

    It’s still unclear if or how Tabor’s account is connected to Jackson’s disappearance.

    Body of missing Cocoa woman found in Osceola County

    Detectives and crime scene technicians are at a remote area in Osceola County where the body of Tashaun Jackson, 31, was found Friday night, according to the Cocoa Police Department.

    Jackson’s family reported Tashaun missing on Sunday after she failed to return home Saturday from a trip to the store. Detectives found video evidence putting her at the 7-Eleven, 947 Dixon Blvd. at around 3 p.m. Saturday.

    Investigative tools provided enough information to lead detectives to request an aerial search of an area near Nova Road and Deer Park Rd. in Osceola County.

    The Brevard County Sheriff’s Office helicopter located the body just off of Deer Park Rd east of Nova Rd.

    Jackson’s family has been notified.

    The investigation is active with assistance from Osceola Osceola County Sheriff’s Office, Brevard County Sheriff’s Office and FDLE. No other information is available for public release.

    An autopsy will be conducted to determine her cause of death.

    Jackson's family has been very vocal since her disappearance last weekend in leading the search.

    They contend that her disappearance could be connected to a deposition she gave two weeks ago in an attempted rape case.

    However, Cocoa Police have not made that connection officially.

    To compound the tragedy, Jackson's family says that, shortly after getting news of her death, her father was struck by a car and killed.

    A day after family and friends held a vigil in her honor, an autopsy is expected to get underway on the remains of a 31-year-old Cocoa mother of four.

    Detectives continue to piece together clues — including possible DNA evidence — in connection with her death.

    It is the latest development in the case involving Tashaun Jackson, who disappeared Feb. 9 and whose body was discovered six days later along a remote patch of wildland off of Deer Park and Nova roads in Osceola County.

    “It’s a homicide investigation,” said Yvonne Martinez, spokeswoman for the Cocoa Police Department

    “The detectives are still working the case.” She did not elaborate on how Jackson was killed.

    Since Saturday, detectives have executed several search warrants, including one on a sport utility vehicle, and one on the home of a man involved in a criminal case in which Jackson was supposed to give a deposition, according to family members and police.

    Detectives are looking into whether the disappearance could be connected to a separate case where Jackson was the victim of a sexual battery. The battery case involved a man suspected of entering her home uninvited and touching her without permission, reports show.

    Man shot, killed Cocoa mother after she gave deposition against him, police say

    The man accused of killing a Cocoa mother of four is now in jail being held without bond.

    It’s the same man police said the mother, Tashaun Jackson, provided a deposition against before she went missing on Feb. 9.

    Investigators said 30-year-old Joshua Taylor was the suspect in a September 2018 attempted sexual battery case that Jackson provided testimony about before he kidnapped and killed her.

    Police said Jackson was the victim in that case. Her body was found in rural Osceola County on Feb. 15.

    Police said they believe Jackson was shot and killed the same day she went missing.

    Taylor is charged with first-degree murder, kidnapping and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

    I don't understand people who kill witnesses, now he's eligible for the death penalty.

    RIP Tashuan

    The state attorney’s office filed notice this week that it plans to seek the death penalty against a man suspected of kidnapping a 31-year-old mother of four, then fatally shooting her and leaving her body in a remote stretch of Osceola County.

    Prosecutors examining the case file prepared by Cocoa police said the actions of Joshua Taylor were "especially cruel and calculated" to prevent Tashaun Jackson from testifying against him in another criminal case in which she was the victim.

    A grand jury indicted Taylor, 30, on charges of first-degree premeditated murder with a firearm, kidnapping while inflicting death, and possession of a firearm by a felon in connection with Jackson's Feb. 9 death.

    Jackson was reported missing Feb. 9 after she failed to return home during a quick errand to a nearby convenience store and a stop at McDonald’s.

    Cocoa police said Taylor, who completed a 12-year sentence in state prison for an unrelated carjacking charge last April, targeted Jackson when he learned she was cooperating as a witness against him in a burglary that took place at her home.

    The family of a woman who authorities say was kidnapped and killed by a convicted felon is filing a lawsuit against the apartment complex where the mother lived with her children.

    Tashaun Jackson's family members claim that the companies that own and manage Clear Pond Estates were negligent and failed to protect Jackson against suspect Joshua Taylor, who lived in the same Section 8 housing.

    Cocoa police officials said Taylor kidnapped Jackson in February, two days after she gave a deposition, so she wouldn't testify against him in a burglary with assault or battery case in which she was the victim.

    The victim's family said Taylor was staying at an apartment 200 to 500 feet away from Jackson.

    Greg Francis, an attorney from the Osborne & Francis law firm, said Jackson was threatened and harassed for months and workers at the complex knew but failed to act, even as she expressed that she was worried she'd be killed.

    “We believe this apartment complex was negligent by their failure to provide a secure premises free of this type of violent activity," Francis said.

    He claims the management companies -- Evergreen Partners, LLC, PMINC and Hot Cacao Limited Partnership -- spent money on aesthetic upgrades rather than installing upgraded security features.

    He also noted that since Taylor is a convicted felon, he shouldn't have been living at Clear Pond Estates but rather than going through the proper channels and going through a background check like Jackson did, he lived with his girlfriend without the complex's approval.
