    Ella Diebolt Jackson (48) was found dead six months after she went missing; her husband has been charged

    https://www.kentucky.com/news/local/...236642548.html

    Richmond police are searching for a mother who vanished from her home Sunday; she has not been seen since.

    Ella Diebolt Jackson, 48, was last seen at her Westwood Drive home in Richmond on Sunday, police said. Her phone, dog and car were located at the home, and she has not been active on social media since the weekend, according to her ex-husband.

    The woman?s husband is cooperating with police, Assistant Police Chief Rodney Richardson said, and no one has been identified as a suspect as of Friday morning.

    Jackson is described as 5-feet-8, 150 pounds, thin build with shoulder-length black hair, Richmond police said. She was last seen wearing khaki-colored shorts, black and white shoes, a black Under Armor shirt and hoop earrings.

    Her ex-husband, Jason Hans, is a professor of Family Sciences at the University of Kentucky. He said ?Ella loves her children more than life itself, and never would have willingly left without her son.?

    She is the mother of a 5-year-old son and an adult son.

    Jackson?s husband could not be immediately reached for comment. He?s an Eastern Kentucky University professor, Hans said.

    Those who interacted with Jackson in the days leading up to her disappearance said she was in a good mood and going about her normal day-to-day business, Hans said.

    Richardson said there is no trace of Jackson and family has not heard from her since Sunday. Investigators are working to find any information on her whereabouts, Richardson added.

    Jackson is a native of Russia who lived in Ukraine as a young adult before moving to Lexington in 2004, Hans said. A graduate of University of Kentucky, she moved to Richmond with her current husband in 2015.

    ?(Ella?s) intellect is sharp, her compassion is pure and her charm is captivating,? Jason Hans said. ?Ella has long been one of the few people that I cherish most in this life, and her disappearance is agonizing for those who love her.?

    If you know anything about Jackson?s disappearance contact the Richmond Police Department at 859-624-4776 or detective@richmond.ky.us.

    Four months later and there is still no sign of 48-year-old Ella Jackson. She was last seen Sunday, Oct. 20 walking one of her dogs at Million Park near her Richmond home.

    Richmond Police continue to search for the Madison County mother. Assistant Chief Rodney Richardson said there has been no activity on Jackson's bank cards, cell phone or social media. "I'm pretty confident in our investigators' ability that eventually we will reach the truth. Either we're going to find Mrs. Jackson or find out what happened to her," said Richardson.

    Days after Jackson vanished, her oldest son, Phillip Hans, told LEX 18 it's unlike his mother to be gone even one day. He said her longest trips from home were to the grocery. He said on Sunday October 20th his mother shared a message with a photo of her walking one of her dogs at Million Park in Richmond not far from her home.

    "Everything of hers is at the house, she wouldn't leave her kid behind, her car is there, her phone is there," he said. "All her stuff is there."

    Jackson was last seen wearing khaki-colored cut shorts, black and white shoes, black sleeve Under Armor shirt and hoop earrings.
    Hans went on to say Jackson would never abandon her five-year-old son or small dog who requires daily medicine.

    Jackson's husband, Ex-EKU English Professor Glenn D. Jackson, told LEX 18 in October, his wife asked him and their young son to leave the house for an extended period of time the weekend she vanished. He believes she left on her own.

    Richmond police have charged the husband of Ella Diebolt Jackson, a Richmond woman who has been missing since last fall, with her murder.

    Glenn Jackson, 39, was arrested Friday and charged with murder-domestic violence and tampering with physical evidence, Richmond police said in a news release.

    While police said they have not found Ella Jackson’s body, they said in the release that when they executed a search warrant on the couple’s home and vehicles, they found “a significant amount” of her blood in the trunk of Glenn Jackson’s vehicle.
    According to the release, investigators learned that the 48-year-old mother had met with a domestic violence advocate a few days before she disappeared, leaving behind her young son and all her belongings.

    Police said in the news release that they found “several recordings that Mrs. Jackson secretly made of her and Mr. Jackson’s arguments. Mrs. Jackson also told several individuals that she was afraid of Mr. Jackson, and if anything ever happened to her, her husband would be responsible.”

    Glenn Jackson has worked as an honors instructor at Eastern Kentucky University, where he has taught English and honors rhetoric. A university spokeswoman said Friday evening that Jackson’s official title was senior lecturer in English. She said he has not been employed there since February.

    Ella Jackson’s ex-husband, Jason Hans, a professor of family sciences at the University of Kentucky, said in a lengthy Facebook post Friday night that the two had remained close friends after their divorce more than 10 years ago. She let him know beginning in 2015 that she was afraid for her safety, he said.

    Hans wrote: “The messages and rushed phone calls were all too regular in recent years: ‘I need your help,’ ‘I am very scared,’ ‘I am scared to the point of not being ok to get out of the bedroom to get a cup of milk or change my tampon,’ ‘I am being awakened at almost 3 in the morning and dragged through the house,’ ‘It is getting seriously scary [and] I am very worried about my child and myself.’”

    Though he had offered to provide financial support so that she could leave, Hans said Jackson worried that her husband would take their child from her if she did.

    Human remains found last week are those of a missing Kentucky woman whose husband was charged with killing her, police said Tuesday.

    The state medical examiner’s office confirmed through dental records that the remains found April 29 belong to Ella Diebolt Jackson, Richmond police said in a statement.

    She had been missing since October. Police have charged Glenn Jackson, 39, with murder-domestic violence, tampering with evidence and abuse of a corpse.

    Richmond police said that when they executed a search warrant on the couple’s home and vehicles, they found her blood in the trunk of Glenn Jackson’s vehicle.

    So if her blood was found in the trunk, where was her body found? How can that last article exclude that little tidbit? #wtfjournalism
    You are talking to a woman who has laughed in the face of death, sneered at doom and chuckled at catastrophe.

    Good catch. I was skimming and didn't catch that. It appears as if she was actually found dumped somewhere.

    The Kentucky State Medical Examiner’s Office has confirmed that human remains found last week in Pulaski County are those of a missing Richmond mom.

    Medical examiners will try to determine if skeletal remains found in Pulaski County are those of a missing Richmond woman whose husband was recently charged with killing her even though her body hadn’t been found.
