This poor California lady has been lacking since January — and it appears police could have blown their probability to search out her!
In case you haven’t been following the case, Alexis Gabe was final seen at her house within the Bay Space on January 26. Oakley Police imagine her disappearance was NOT by selection. Actually, they assume she was murdered by her boyfriend, Marshall Curtis Jones (above, inset). Sadly when cops lastly caught up with Jones this month, it didn’t go nicely. When U.S. Marshals and native officers tried to arrest him in a pal’s house in Kent, Washington the place he’d apparently been hiding, they allege he had a knife — and that that they had no selection however to shoot him useless. Hmm.
Six months after she first went lacking, Alexis’ dad and mom obtained an enormous lead! As we reported, the Gabes received copies of handwritten notes by Jones after his loss of life — notes which authorities imagine are the important thing to discovering Alexis’ physique. Included within the papers, discovered within the rubbish at a home owned by Jones’ sister, are detailed driving instructions which result in a rural street in Pioneer, California — about 60 miles east of Sacramento.
Police imagine they confirmed Jones adopted the instructions. Antioch police instructed the Gabe household they had been capable of monitor his telephone to a location en route:
“Marshall turned off his phone for several hours during the period he drove to Pioneer… We believe he drove this route because about half of the way there he got lost and had to turn his phone on to get back on the right route.”
Cops instantly adopted the instructions and commenced their search in earnest for the 27-year-old’s stays. They’ve searched 200 acres within the space, together with draining an 8 million-gallon pond. Alexis’ father Gwyn Gabe instructed ABC7:
“Unfortunately, they found nothing.”
“They’re only focusing on Pioneer. They strongly believe she is there.”
He and his spouse are nonetheless hopeful their daughter is alive. Gwyn mentioned:
“Until we find a body, we’re just going to keep believing that she’s still alive.”
So unhappy. If police are proper, and she or he is useless, each day of false hope is one other delay for the dad and mom to heal. The earlier she’s discovered, both manner, the higher. It’ll give them the closure they want.
Sadly cops could have blown the one probability that they had of ever discovering her. In the event that they’re proper, solely Jones knew precisely the place she was. The factor that’s going unsaid in lots of reviews we’re seeing about this new data, data that appears to show Jones knew the place she was, is how a lot of a failure that is on the a part of police. They might have already got discovered Alexis, alive or useless, if solely they may handle to arrest a Black suspect with out killing him. Nobody goes to defend the actions of the person if he murdered his girlfriend, however simply because he was a suspected killer didn’t imply he didn’t have rights. And loads of suspects are detained with out being killed each day.
To be sincere we’re largely interested by Alexis’ household proper now. In a press release, Gwyn Gabe referred to as Marshall’s loss of life “tragic and unexpected,” revealing:
“My wife cried so hard upon hearing of his passing.”
It was all too clear how upset the household was with how this went down. The grieving father defined, holding again tears himself:
“We wanted to meet with him face to face. We wanted to look him in the eye and ask him why, ask him, ‘Where is Alexis?’”
They only hoped to get to face him — and discover out as soon as and for certain the place their daughter is. You possibly can study extra in regards to the tried arrest (under):
