MP of the week: Brenda Jackson

This week’s featured missing person is 32-year-old Brenda Maria Jackson, a woman who disappeared from Park Forest, Illinois on January 3, 2016. Her mom spoke to her on the phone that evening and Brenda said she was home alone. She was reported missing after she didn’t show up for her early morning shift at work.

I wonder if Jackson’s husband is a suspect in her disappearance. There was a history of domestic violence between them apparently. I haven’t been able to find out anything about him.

    I don’t understand how someone could lost custody of the children after she refused to press charges against her husband for domestic violence ?

      Forcing children to live in an atmosphere where they are exposed to domestic violence is child abuse.

      Also there’s probably more to the story.

    Brenda, if I remember right is a veteran. So, I wonder if she was dealing with any issues from her military sevice. We have many veterans dealing with PTSD, and other medical and mental issues.

    Meaghan, in regards to her husband, supposedly the children were removed because Brenda refused to file a domestic violence complaint against her husband. It appears the grandparents had custody, but DCFS and the Cook County Public Guardian took them away from them also. It appears that may have been not providing a safe environment for them. It could be that they might have been allowing the husband to see them, but not sure of the details.
