    FL - Ashani Karin Creighton, 4, Orlando, 21 March 1997


    Missing Since: March 21, 1997 from Orlando, Florida
    Classification: Endangered Missing
    Date Of Birth: August 16, 1992
    Age: 4 years old
    Height and Weight: 4'0, 50 pounds
    Distinguishing Characteristics: African-American female. Black hair, brown eyes. Creighton's ears are pierced. She may be known by her middle name, Karin, or use the alias first name Ashanti.

    Details of Disappearance

    Creighton was last seen by her mother on March 21, 1997 in their hometown of Orlando, Florida. She was initially abducted by her non-custodial grandparents, Ernest S. Jackson and Kaia Jackson, also known as Ernest and Abiola Anderson, in March 1997. Photographs of them are posted below this case summary. The Jacksons moved from Orlando to Tulsa, Oklahoma in August 1998, with their four children. The last confirmed sighting of Creighton took place at that time.

    Creighton's grandparents were arrested for child abuse charges in October 2000 in Oklahoma. The charges are relating to the abuse of one of their sons in 1988 and are not related to Creighton's case. Both Ernest and Kaia were convicted of the charges and sentenced to twelve and ten years in prison, respectively. The Jacksons' children were located in Oklahoma but Creighton was not with them at the time of their arrest and she has not been seen again.

    In 2006, Jerry Jackson wrote a confession that he and a male accomplice had killed Creighton "round bout March of 1997." He also confessed to the murder of another woman and drew a map pinpointing the spot where he said he put both females' remains. Jackson, a teenager who has a history of mental illness, is serving a thirty-year sentence for a number of violent crimes he committed in 2002, including kidnapping and rape. Authorities have doubts about his credibility; he said Creighton was thirteen years old at the time of her death when she would have been four, and there is no missing persons report on file for the other person Jackson claims to have murdered. However, police plan to investigate Jackson's account to see if it has any veracity.

    Creighton's grandparents are the prime suspects in her disappearance. Investigators believe she was murdered and her body was taken to Oklahoma and buried somewhere in that state. The Jacksons have refused to be interviewed regarding Creighton's case and have never been charged in connection with it.

    Tulsa Police: Missing Florida Girl's Body May Be Buried Beneath South Tulsa Parking Lot

    [snip]

    Sheriff's deputies in Florida developed a lead -- that her remains were brought to Tulsa and buried behind a house in 1999.

    Problem is, a lot has changed since then.

    "That house has been torn down; a new structure was built: a shopping center and a parking lot behind it," Deputy Tulsa Police Chief Dennis Larsen said.

    South Tulsa search resumes for missing Florida girl Ashani Creighton

    On Monday, forensic crews returned to an area in south Tulsa where they believe the body of a 5-year-old Florida girl could be buried.

    Crews searched that same general area in March, but found no sign of Ashani Creighton. But on the last day of the search, three cadaver dogs alerted to the same brush pile. So this where crews are focusing their efforts this time.
