For­mer po­lice of­fi­cer, daugh­ter found dead in mur­der-sui­cide

The Washington Times Daily - - Metro -

A for­mer Fair­fax County po­lice sergeant and his daugh­ter were found dead early Tues­day in what po­lice are call­ing a mur­der-sui­cide.

The bod­ies of John Jack­son, 40, and his 13year-old daugh­ter, Alexis Jack­son, were found in an SUV parked in the drive­way of a home on the 3800 block of For­est Grove Drive in An­nan­dale.

The home was not where the Jack­sons lived, po­lice said.

Of­fi­cers re­sponded to the scene around 1:14 a.m. af­ter a fam­ily mem­ber re­port­edly found Jack­son and his daugh­ter, of 5909 Sum­mers Lane in Falls Church, dead in the ve­hi­cle.

The deaths likely oc­curred be­tween mid­night and 1 a.m., and the med­i­cal ex­am­iner will work to de­ter­mine the causes of death, po­lice said.

Jack­son worked for the Fair­fax County Po­lice Depart­ment for 16 years be­fore leav­ing in 2010.

The As­so­ci­ated Press re­ported that the girl’s mother also was in the SUV but es­caped and called po­lice.
