True Crime Tuesday: Unsolved murder of  Adre’Anna Jackson

True Crime Tuesday: Unsolved murder of Adre’Anna Jackson

At 7:45 am on December 2nd, 2005, Adre’anna left her apartment on Portland Avenue to walk to Tillicum Elementary. Adre’anna and her family were unaware that school had been canceled that day due to snow. When Adre’anna didn’t return home at her usual time after school her mother Yvette began to look for her throughout the neighborhood. After being unable to find her, she called police to report her as missing. A large search effort commenced for several hours and included over 120 police officers and volunteers as well as multiple search and rescue dogs. In the days preceding her disappearance, a few children came forward to claim they had seen her, but unfortunately there were very few leads and police grew more concerned with each day that passed that Adre’anna had been taken and very likely hurt by someone. On April 4th, 2006, 4 months after Adre’anna’s disappearance, two boys playing near a vacant lot in the the Woodbrook area located skeletal remains. It was later confirmed that the remains belonged to Adre’anna. She was found within 2 miles of her own home. Over the years, the FBI and police have theorized possible persons of interest in this case, but there have been no arrests. There is a $60,000 reward being offered in this case. Crime Stoppers is offering $10,0o0 for the arrest and charges filed against a suspect and the FBI is offering $50,000 for the arrest, charges filed, and conviction of a suspect. If you have any information on the unsolved murder of Adre’anna Jackson, you can submit a tip by calling Crimestoppers of Tacoma/Pierce county at 1-800-TIPS (8477)
