The family of Jacqueline Watts filed a missing report when she didn’t come home on Friday night. A news outlet said authorities discovered her car with the headlights on. They also found her cellphone and purse inside her car, but she was nowhere to be found.
The last time the family saw Watts was after she left her pets at her family’s house, as she had a plan to fly to Washington, D.C., with her husband. The authorities searched around the area where they found her car. Not long after, they discovered Watts’ dead body on a sandbar in Columbus’s Flatrock River.
Authorities discovered the truth about her disappearance
After examining the body, the police said that there seemed to be no signs of a struggle. On Monday, Columbus police said a witness told them they’d seen a woman matching Watt’s description on Friday afternoon. Witnesses said that she was after a small white dog who was about to go near the river.
Authorities discovered a social media post that fit the description of a lost dog called Ringo. The post sought help in finding the 10-year-old poodle, who suffers from cataracts and is nearly deaf. Authorities discovered the body of a tiny white dog along the river on Sunday and identified it as Ringo.
She totally went above and beyond to save a stray puppy
She tried to help a lost dog and sadly lost her life in the process. Jackie’s family said that her compassion for others was evident throughout her life. They said that she worked as a teaching assistant for the Indianapolis Public Schools, an events coordinator for the Indianapolis Public Schools, and many more.
She helped animal rescue organizations and fostered dogs and rabbits. She was especially passionate about animal’s wellbeing. She will help them to the best of her ability.
Jackie’s family was well aware that she gave her life to what she loved most.
