Body of Mom Found in Trunk: Victim Had a Criminal Record

She was arrested for theft, assault and battery of a police officer

Police in Breckenridge Hills are investigating the suspicious death of Ebony Jackson, found dead in the trunk of her car on Tuesday, January 8.

As we have previously informed you, St. Louis PD have organized a press conference detailing what they know on the case. Their findings revealed that Jackson had an extensive criminal record.

News 9 Oklahoma gives details about her three arrests, which occurred in the 2005-2012 period. Twice in 2011, and  on November 27, 2012, she was caught stealing. The third arrest was for the more serious offenses of assault and battery of a police officer.

The 2011 incident occurred in Dillard's Department store at Quail Springs Mall, while the most recent theft took place at a Wal-Mart in Oklahoma City. In the latter case, she was hiding stolen items in the baby's stroller.

The St. Louis Post Dispatch, reporting about her disappearance, wrote that her baby was found abandoned in an apartment complex on Friday, January 4.

Jackson's GPS will be used to analyze what route the vehicle took before being uncovered. Police in St. Louis will be retrieving the data from the dealer.

A device was installed on the car, for tracking in case it got stolen. Her car was parked in the 4400 block of Elmbank, in North St. Louis, when police came upon it.

Her phone records are also being looked into. Other issues in this case include a pending paternity test, and a note Jackson left before vanishing. Before she last left their home, she wrote a short letter telling members of the family that she needed her space.

At first, there were doubts over whether or not Jackson was the baby's mother. A man claiming he is her boyfriend and the baby's father reported her missing.

As there was no proof of the connection between them, Craig Prom had to undergo a paternity test. If the results were positive, police would consider Jackson being the mother.
