Native American Heritage Month: Ida Jacomet

In honor of Native American Heritage Month I’m featuring a Native American missing person for every day in the month of November. Today’s missing person is Ida Rose Jacomet, age 37, who disappeared from Fairbanks, Alaska on October 2, 1975. I do not know her tribal info.

She was last seen at a bar. After her disappearance, her purse was found in the bar’s parking lot, which makes me wonder if she got grabbed just after she left.

I don’t know anything much else about her case, but I doubt she’s still alive. Alaska has a high violent crime rate, and it was worse back in the seventies.

    The link for Ida Rose Jacomet isn’t available. I was able to find her anyway on your site by googling her. Thank you!

    What’s the reason for the high crime rate? The cold pissing people off more easily? (No, seriously, I’m genuinely curious I’d yoyv read anything that explains it.)

      My friend who lives in Alaska blames widespread alcohol and drug abuse and a gender imbalance; more men live there than women.

      I agree with Meaghan’ s friend. I worked in Alaska for 3 months, I loved it, but yeah, people there do drink! Reminded me of Eastern Europe!

    If she was abducted, it’s possible that the culprit was Robert Hansen aka “Butcher Baker”. He killed many women in Alaska, many of whom were Native American.
