During a recent press conference, the Indianapolis authorities declared that the body of 33-year-old Jacqueline Watts, the woman who was reported missing on Friday, has been discovered on a sandbar located at the Noblitt Park. The investigators said that the cause of death remains unknown and that they have not excluded the possibility of homicide. Watts’s car was found abandoned on Saturday, one day after the authorities began a state-wide search.
The Indianapolis law enforcement officers that the search for the missing Jacqueline Watts has ended, after the woman’s body, has been retrieved from a sandbar located near the Flatrock River. According to the police documents, the woman was reported missing on Friday, after failing to meet up with her husband with whom she planned to fly to Washington D.C.
Jenn Watts Barrie, the woman’s sister-in-law told the press and the investigators that Jacqueline already packed up her bags and left her pets with her and her mother before leaving. However, that was the last time someone saw the woman alive, as Watts disappeared on her way home.
After her disappearance has been reported, the authorities began a state-wide search. On Saturday, the law enforcement officers found Watts’s vehicle in Columbus. The investigators discover that the car was abandoned and that the woman must have switched on the hazard light before vanishing.
The police ruled out theft as a possible motive since the woman’s belongings (purse, wallet, and cellphone) were discovered inside the abandoned vehicle. Watts’s vehicle was discovered at approximately 4:30 pm and her body were recovered from the sandbar near Flatrock River later that evening.
According to the authorities, the woman’s lifeless body was discovered approximately half a mile from the abandoned car. Oddly enough, Watts’s body was discarded in an area known as Noblitt Park, approximately 120 miles away from the notorious Delphi path, where the investigators discovered the bodies of two teenage girls in February.
The authorities declared that there’s no coincidence in finding Watts’s body so close to the Delphi path. Furthermore, they believe that the same individual who killed 14-year-old Liberty German and 13-year-old Abigail Williams might have kidnapped and murdered Jacqueline Watts.
For the time being, the investigators are not sure about how Watts died and are waiting for the coroner’s report which is due on Monday. Meanwhile, the police are searching for an individual who appeared in the recordings of one of the teenagers who was killed in February.
