Police Examine Possible Link Between Bones Found, Missing Woman

POSTED: Wednesday, April 15, 2009
UPDATED: 12:56 am EDT April 16, 2009

NASSAU COUNTY, Fla. -- Investigators said they are using every tool at their disposal to learn if human remains found in the woods of Nassau County are those of a Callahan woman who disappeared nearly nine years ago. 

According to the Nassau County Sheriff's Office, two hunters found a human skull and bones last Friday while walking in a wooded area off county Road 119.

Sheriff Tommy Seagraves said it appears the bones are those of a white woman.

"We're going to send this information to Broward County, where they have computer automated system that's is able to reconstruct and rebuild a form of a face figure to the skull itself," Seagraves said.

He said foul play is suspected.

Jackie Markham has been missing since December 2000.

Detectives said they think they know how the woman was killed, but they would not release that information because they said it's too important to their investigation. However, detectives did reveal that they have requested Jacquelyn Markham's dental records to see if they match.

The 52-year-old mother and grandmother disappeared from her Callahan home almost nine years ago.

Family and friends put up flyers all over town hoping someone would recognize Markham and know her whereabouts, but nobody ever did. Now, police are investigating again, but they were quick to point out the bones found in the woods could belong to anyone.

The sheriff said the bones could belong to anyone and that he doesn't want to give Markham's family and friends false hope, but he said after nine years they deserve closure and his agency is investigating.

Skeletal remains may be missing local woman
By Shannon Malcom, News-Leader
4/17/09

Nassau County investigators are looking into the possibility that skeletal remains found near Bryceville last weekend could be those of Jackie Markham, a Callahan mother and grandmother who went missing on Dec. 14, 2000.

Nassau County Sheriff Tommy Seagraves said experts with the Jacksonville Medical Examiner's Office and an anthropology expert are "leaning toward (the remains being) female and Caucasian."

Detectives are working the case as a homicide, Seagraves said. But he cautioned that no positive identification of the bones has been made and a cause of death has not yet been determined.

Seagraves said in addition to "countless" Caucasian women reported missing nationwide, there's "a girl missing from Clay County, females missing from Duval, from Broward County."

"It could be anybody, but it could be (Markham)," Seagraves said Thursday morning. "I actually have talked to the Markham family, and of course the missing person from that general area is Jackie Markham, and I'd love to see this lead to some more steps to solving this case for the family ... but even if not, it's still good to re-release the story (of Markham's disappearance) and keep it in the public eye."

Markham would have turned 60 this year; family members have long assumed she is dead, but the uncertainty is torturous for her children.

"She has just enough hope (that her mother is still alive) to make her life miserable," Markham's son-in-law Todd Myrick said of his wife Melissa, Markham's daughter, in a 2006 interview. "Sometimes there will be that one second, in an airport or something, where she sees someone with the same hair or something and thinks, 'Maybe,' but it's never her."

And, Seagraves is quick to caution, this may not be her. With no positive DNA identification, no cause of death ruling, no word yet on how long the remains have been where they were found or when this person may have died, Seagraves said at this point the only thing linking the remains to Markham is the educated guess by experts that the bones are from a white female along with the fact they were discovered on the West Side of Nassau County, in the general area where Markham went missing.

The bones, including a human skull, were discovered at a hunt club in Bryceville April 10 and do show some indication that the death was a homicide, but Seagraves declined to confirm that the indications include a possible bullet hole in the skull.

"The experts need to do some X-raying, at this point, we're looking for everything," Seagraves said. "They're also hoping to be able to get DNA out of the teeth ... they're going to send a description and the measurements of the skull itself, and there's a computer system that's able to maybe reconstruct a face ... they're trying to get an estimate of the height of the person."

Because Seagraves is familiar with the Markham case, and with Markham's family, he admits he hopes the remains are those of Markham, so detectives can go from there to solving the case, and the family can have some closure. The case was re-opened by the sheriff's office in 2006.

Markham disappeared the day before a planned trip to visit her children and her grandson for an early Christmas in December 2000. Her Christmas tree was found half-decorated and covered in cobwebs when her children went to her home to collect her personal items in April 2001, and since her disappearance, her car, her bank account, her cell phone, her name, her Social Security number and her legal name have never been used.

Her family had her declared legally dead so they could sell her Callahan home. Still, Seagraves knows they are hoping for some answers.

"Right now, they don't have anything, any answers," he said. "All they have is memories."

Jackie Markham
Missing since December 14, 2000


Posted Image

Jackie Markham, a feisty trucking company manager, picks up a prescription Thursday, December 14, 2000 near her home in Callahan, Florida — and vanishes. She appears to have made it home, because her car is in her garage. But there's no sign of violence at the house, and no trace of her anywhere. Jackie's friends and family are mystified, certain the workaholic 51-year-old would never skip out and abandon her responsibilities to her job or her relationship with her adored children and grandchildren.

But then a boyfriend says she made a mysterious phone call, warning him that a rival suitor was at her house, drunk. He says he raced to her house and found her gone. The Sheriff has his doubts — was the "rival" ever really there? But then Jackie's purse is found in a ditch in a rough neighborhood — not far from a serial killer's lair, and the case takes a much darker turn.

National Missing Persons Day

 

Yulee, Fla. – On February 22, 2013, Sheriff Bill Leeper attended the National Missing Persons Day event held by the Justice Coalition at Jacksonville City Hall.  The event and news conference was held to honor those who are missing and to show support for the families of those who continue to search for their loved one.  Sheriff Leeper was joined by family members of Jacquelyn “Jackie” Lorraine Markham, who has been missing from Callahan, FL, since December 14, 2000.

 

On December 14, 2000, Jacquelyn “Jackie” Lorraine Markham was reported to be missing from the Callahan area.  Mrs. Markham was last seen in the drive-thru of Eckerds Drugs in Callahan.  Mrs. Markham’s vehicle was located at her residence at the time of the report of being missing.  Although multiple persons of interest have been interviewed, extensive searches completed and many leads followed to fruition, this case remains pending and foul play is suspected.  This case was recently followed up on after the airing of ‘Disappeared’, an Investigation Discovery television special, on January 30, 2013, spotlighting this case; however, no sustainable information was obtained.

 

This case is being highlighted to remind the community of who Mrs. Markham is and what she means to us.  By showing her information again, the Nassau County Sheriff’s Office hopes that it will bring a new lead by encouraging those who may know something to report it.  Should you or someone you now have information, please contact the Nassau County Sheriff’s Office at 904-548-4084 or First Coast Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-8477.
