A Indianapolis woman, Jacqueline Watts, was found dead on a sandbar by Flatrock River Saturday morning. Her car was found abandoned near a wooded area hours after she was set to fly to Washington, D.C. with her husband. After an all night search Watts’ body was found on a sandbank an hour after police started searching the area, around 8.30am on Saturday. They did not disclose where along the river her body was found. It is not clear how she died at this time.
33-year-old Watts’s dropped off her pet rabbit and dogs at her parents’ house before the trip. But she did not meet her husband at home before they were supposed to head to the airport Friday afternoon according to The Republic.
Her disappearance was considered ‘suspicious’.
Jacqueline Watts dropped off her pets with her parents, set to fly to DC. Just hours later, her car was found running with the emergency flashers on in Columbus, Indiana and she was declared missing.
Police found Watts’s car running with the passenger door open near a wooded area in Columbus, which is an hour drive outside Indianapolis. Her purse and cellphone were inside the vehicle and the emergency flashers were on.
Columbus Police searched the area near where her car was found and held a press conference Saturday morning. Officers looked over the area overnight and reached out to the Louisville Metropolitan police department to search with a helicopter.
The investigation is ongoing and the police spokesman urged the public to not jump to conclusions or post rumors on social media, apparently in reference to the unsubstantiated
rumor about a bloodied woman walking out of the woods.
This also may have been in reference to rumors surrounding the two teens who were found murdered along Deer Creek in Delphi, which is about an hour north of Indianapolis. Police confirmed there have not been any arrests in this case.
Police investigations in the search area where the body was found
Liberty German and Abigail Williams were found near Monon High Bridge Trail which is 121 miles away from where Watts’s car was found on Riverside Drive in Columbus, according to Fox59.
Watts’s sister-in-law Jen Watts Barrie posted on Facebook the details about what Jacqueline was doing before she went missing. She wrote: ‘My sister in law, Jackie, has been missing since this afternoon. She and my brother were flying to DC tonight for a visit, and she didn’t come home to meet Michael and go to the airport.
‘She dropped their dogs off at my parents’ house and rabbit off at her parents’ house and no one heard from her afterward. Her car has been located in Columbus, IN, running, with her cell phone and purse inside and the passenger side door open.’
‘PLEASE PLEASE view her picture, jog your memories and ask others to take a look. Please pray and send good thoughts. We love her and need her home safe and sound.’
So far, police have not said if and how Watts death could be tied to the fate of the two Indiana schoolgirls who were found dead last month, over 100 miles away.
