Missing Indianapolis Woman Found Dead Near River

Police Saturday morning found the body of a missing Indianapolis woman on a sandbar near Flatrock River, less than a two hour drive from where a pair of teens were found dead last month.

Watts was planning to fly to Washington, D.C., with her husband, according to family members. The passenger door was left open, her cellphone and purse still inside.

Watts's relatives called police Friday and said she was supposed to be home from her trip to Columbus but had not yet returned.

Officers searching the surrounding area recovered Watts' body next to the Flatrock River on Saturday morning, less than half a mile from her auto.

When it appeared like foul play had been involved in Watts' disappearance, Jenn Watts Barrie, her sister-in-law, took to Facebook to request her community's help in locating Jacqueline Watts. Columbus Police responded to the 2300 block of Riverside Drive for a report of an abandoned vehicle that still had its engine running. On Saturday, the law enforcement officers found Watts's vehicle in Columbus. She was located around a half-mile from her vehicle.




"She dropped their dogs off at my parents' house and rabbit off at her parents' house and no one heard from her afterward", Barrie wrote.

Investigators say Jackie Watts, 33, was last seen after stopping at her parent's house.

While the investigation is now ongoing, an autopsy has been officially scheduled for Monday.

Addressing reporters, Police Lt Harris said he would await the cause of Watts' death and the completion of the woman's autopsy, tentatively scheduled for Monday before offering further briefs.
