Police still working on Jackson homicide one year later

LAWTON, Okla._This month marks the one year anniversary of the unsolved murder of Shallaina Jackson.

Last March, Lawton police came across a grisly scene in the 1700 block of SW Douglass where they found Jackson's body. The 26-year-old mother of six had been stabbed several times. Shortly afterward, a memorial was set up there to remember her life, and to help find her killer.

Investigators are still on the case trying to put together who was behind the murder, right now, they do not have enough information to make an arrest. As for the memorial, it lays in pieces, battered from the weather and almost forgotten by the public.

It's been nearly a year since Shallaina Jackson's body was found. The memorial used to be well taken care of with crosses that once stood tall. Now, the crosses are lying on the ground and the flowers are nearly all gone. But investigators have not forgotten what happened to her.

"I don't want to call it a cold case because it's not because like we talked about it is less than a year old. The investigators are still looking into any information that comes up," said Captain Akard of the Lawton Police Department.

Captain Akard said  they did a receive a little help from the medical examiner's office just last month.

"We did get part of the report from the M.E.'s office that helped us out. I still have not seen the full complete autopsy report from them yet. But I do know we did get some information as far as DNA goes," said Akard.

They hope that DNA will help lead to solving this murder mystery. When the full report of the autopsy comes out, authorities hope it will give them a clearer picture of what happened.

Lawton police ask if you have any information that could help lead to an arrest to please contact them.
