Eight months later, no new leads on Tillicum girl

Another month has passed with no new information or leads on the death of 10-year-old Adre’anna Jackson.

Eight months ago today, Adre’anna was reportedly last seen heading to Tillicum Elementary School, where she was in the fourth grade. She never made it to school that cold Dec. 2 morning. Her body was found four months later in an overgrown vacant lot across Interstate 5 from the apartment Adre’anna shared with her mother and father.

Earlier this week, Lakewood police Lt. Dave Guttu said investigators were still working on Adre’anna’s case but were largely waiting for reports back from the FBI on evidence collected from the vacant lot. The hope is that the evidence will steer investigators in a direction.

The wait continues. Meanwhile, no suspects have been fingered and it doesn’t appear an arrest is imminent.

Up to $60,000 is being offered for information that leads to arrests, charges filed and convictions in Adre’anna’s death. Anyone with information should call Tacoma-Pierce County Crime Stoppers at 253-591-5959.
