Missing Indianapolis woman found dead on sandbar, cause of death still unknown

The body of Jacqueline Watts 33 was found Saturday morning and now police are searching for clues into her death

After less than a day of searching, authorities found the missing woman about a half-mile from her abandoned auto in Columbus. WTTV reports that her vehicle was found - with the flashers on - but she couldn't be located. Police found Watts' body on the sandbar in the Flatrock River around 8:30 a.m.

Jenn Watts Barrie, the woman's sister-in-law told the press and the investigators that Jacqueline already packed up her bags and left her pets with her and her mother before leaving.

Watts's relatives called police Friday and said she was supposed to be home from her trip to Columbus but had not yet returned. Lt. Harris says officers are searching the area with K-9's where her auto was found and ask that you avoid the area. According to the police documents, the woman was reported missing on Friday, after failing to meet up with her husband with whom she planned to fly to Washington D.C. She was located around a half-mile from her auto.

Wrote Barrie in part: "She dropped their dogs off at my parents" house and rabbit off at her parents' house and no one heard from her afterward'.


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

Harris would not comment on whether police believe foul play was involved, citing the ongoing investigation.

Jacqueline Watts, 33, was reported missing Friday just after authorities found her auto still running with the emergency blinkers on around 4:30 p.m., Police Lt. Matt Harris told the Indy Star. The investigators said that the cause of death remains unknown and that they have not excluded the possibility of homicide.
