Investigators Search For Answers After Woman Stabbed To Death In Front Of Son

Nearly one year after she was murdered, police say they hope the public will help them catch Alicia Jackson’s killer. Get the story.

Investigators sent out a call for help in solving a cold case slaying.

Police said Alicia Jackson was a true victim. She was found stabbed in the face and neck multiple times, slain in front of her young child, 10TV’s Maureen Kocot reported.

Jackson, who grew up in Pennsylvania, held a master’s degree from The Ohio State University and served on the board of the Columbus YMCA before her death.

Jackson’s father never dreamed the day would come when the only thing he wanted for his daughter was justice.

“When you have something like this happen to somebody that’s close to you, the desire for vengeance is always something that you’re tempted with, “Alicia Jackson’s father Kevin Jackson said.

On December 2, 2010, police said that Alicia Jackson was home alone with her two-year-old son when she was stabbed more than two dozen times in the face and neck.

“My belief was that we had what we call a ‘Who Done It?’ and that it was not going to be an easy one to solve,” Columbus Police Detective Steve Eppert said.

Investigators first focused on Jackson’s live-in boyfriend, who discovered her body.

Investigators said Jackson’s boyfriend had a tight alibi, professors and students confirmed that he was at The Ohio State University at the time of the stabbing.

But investigators believe what happened to Jackson was personal, Kocot reported.

“This was not a random break-in,” Eppert said. “Don’t believe that we’re looking for some young street thug.”

Investigators said that they believed there was evidence of rage at the crime scene, which suggested that the killer was emotionally unstable.

Jackson’s father said that he prays that whoever is responsible for the death of his daughter confesses.
