Fugitive Sherman Jackson had strong ties to Ohio, where he was living, raising his child and getting into trouble with the law from time-to-time. Eileen, who does not wish to reveal her last name, said she met Jackson when he stepped up to help her during an abusive relationship, and they became a couple in 2002. She said the attractive, charming ladies man was fun to be around. He also appeared to be a great dad.
Soon Jackson moved in with her three children and he brought his young daughter as well. The blended family seemed to be thriving. Eileen said she knew about Jackson's past criminal history, but he appeared to be on the right path and she was in love with the man he was becoming.
Jackson began studying computers and received his certification and GED. By 2010, Jackson was a computer technician and he worked at a local computer kids club. What Eileen didn't know was what was happening behind closed doors at her home and with other students at the club. It was a massive secret that was ready to be revealed.
In February 2010, Jackson's own daughter and Eilieen's daughter, Maria, finally had the courage to come forward. They both had shared stories together and knew they had to tell someone about what was happening. The girls began to tell their mother about the abuse they endured for most of their lives at the hands of Jackson, Maria even described it as rape. Eileen said on that day, she waited for Jackson to come home - and she confronted him - but he denied any wrongdoing. It wasn't long before Jackson said he had to leave for the store, but never returned and was never seen again.
Only seven months after Jackson went on the run he was indicted for six counts of rape of a child under the age 13 and one count of sexual imposition. Authorities also said some of the children were related to him, and some were not. He had access to some kids through his computer program.
Senior Inspector Bill Bouldin said that over the years authorities have discovered more victims and, "Every place we've ever known him to be are places where there are children."
The Marshals also learned Jackson's father was sending him Western Union money and Jackson had aligned himself with a church camp in Arizona. Jackson grew up going to church and Bouldin said he has a lot of knowledge about religion. Jackson is known to be charismatic and he's intelligent.
US Marshals Senior Inspector David Siler said they will never give up finding this alleged sexual predator of children. Siler knows Jackson fled Warren, OH and traveled to Arizona. After about nine months, Jackson went to Mexico and then to Jamaica. It's possible he's traveling back and forth, he added.
Siler also worked to put Jackson on the elite G-7 list where there are only nine fugitives featured. The G7 website said, "This initative aims to identify and apprehend wanted child sex offenders from across G7 countries (Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, United Kingdom and United States) by bringing together initatives relating to child sex offenders."
Jackson has been running since 2010 and he's incredibly computer savvy. Previously, according to authorities, he's been connected to churches. Currently Jacksons family lives in College Park, GA. If you have any information as to where Jackson is hiding out or traveling to, please contact the IN PURSUIT hotline. John Walsh guarantees you can remain anonymous: 833-378-7783 (3-PURSUE)
