Wrong Side of the Tracks : Jackie Markham


Discovery

Missing since December 14, 2000

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.
