    Family Of Missing Woman Continues To Search For Answers

    CALLAHAN, Fla. -- After years of holding out hope, the family of a missing Callahan woman is no closer to finding out what happened to her.

    Thursday marked the five-year anniversary of the disappearance of Jackie Markham.

    Her family said the mother and grandmother would never leave without telling someone, leading them to believe something awful happened.

    Channel 4's Nancy Rubin spoke with Markham's family.

    "She has grandchildren who ask where she is. How do you explain what happened, to a child who doesn't know what disappeared means?" said Markham's daughter, Melissa Myrick.

    Five years ago, Markham went out to a drug store near her Nassau County home to pick up a prescription. No one has seen the 51-year-old grandmother since.

    There were no leads, no suspects, and no answers for family members who frantically passed out fliers that holiday season and every season since.

    Now, with another Christmas around the corner, Markham's family continues to search for answers.

    "She would never walk out of our lives without telling us where she was going. We know she is not alive," Myrick said.

    Ann Dugger of the Jacksonville Justice Coalition has worked with Jackie Markham's family through the long difficult years.

    Dugger said there are many stories out there about what has happened to Markham, but that it is time to turn rumor into fact.

    "If she did decide to leave and start again, if she was abducted, if she was murdered. Whatever the answer is, this family needs an answer," Dugger said.


    "She was the most kind person ever. She would do anything for anyone and that's why this happened to her. Someone took advantage of her kindness," Myrick said.

    The $20,000 reward for information on Markham comes with no requirement that information lead to an arrest or conviction.

    The reward will go to anyone who has information that tells the family what happened to Markham.


    If you know anything, about her disappearance, please call the Nassau County Sheriff's Department at (904) 225-5174.

    I went to the family website and tried to email about some image changes that need to be made but the email bounced back saying the account had been disabled or discontinued.

    In the meantime:
    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/m/markham_jacquelyn.html
    Note:I added the bolding.
    Boyfriend's own statement places himself at her home that night. We only have his word that she was not there at the time he arrived. And we have his own word that he has a temper that he needed to "control." The purse was dumped within blocks (close enough to cast a shadow of suspicion but not too close) of a sort of homeless type person. (Living in a box car seems to qualify as sort of homeless to me.) This smells like a frame up to me. In fact it smells very much like boyfriend problems just going by what I have read so far.

    Too bad about the email not working... but then, it must be really tough for the family to receive anonymous emails from "anybody".

    Some people's sense of humor leaves MUCH to be desired! :behindbar

    True. I was going to tell them that the pics on the photos section were way too large, in file size - not image size, especially for the number of images they had and it was triggering the geocities bandwidth limits that shut the site down for 30 mins to an hour after only a few page views. And then there were a few problems with the news links that need to be resolved. Oh, well. Onward and upward.

    have the both the boyfriend and the male aquantaince been given lie detector tests?

    if the boyfriend is telling the truth, all fingers point to the drunk friend. What was his alibi after she was found missing? Has his car been checked out?

    then again, maybe the boyfriend came to jackie's house, thought she was cheating on him with the male friend, and flew into a rage.

    maybe the serial killer had something to do with it, but i doubt it.

    I recently received some info by email from a source connected with the findjackiemarkham website. I waited to post that info until I had asked for and received permission.

    I decided to post my emailed questions in black and the responses

    It seems boyfriend might be one one of those psycopathic personalities that sometimes tell clumsy lies. Also when they are done with someone they tend to villify that person. I note in the apparent lie about Jackie's drunk acquaintance he says she asks him to not lose his temper, not come over, as if he is hinting she is acting like a two-timing woman. It reads like a hint from boyfriend that she is a slut without actually coming out and saying such a thing. It sounds like another clumsy lie that actaully draws more attention to himself and hurts his case more than helps it but he can't see that, as most psycopaths can't.

    When I review what little I know of boyfriend's actions I see:
    1. He seems to have lied about the mysterious alleged drunk aquaintance who he named to L.E. as a named friend of Jackie's that boyfriend was known to not like.
    2. And this named person was, unknown to boyfriend, out of state with many witnesses to prove this fact.
    3. The named person did not drink at all, a non drinker.
    4. The way boyfriend told the story of Jackie trying to keep him from coming over when the alleged "drunk" aquaintance was there made her sound like a twotiming bad girl without boyfriend actually calling her that.

    I found the following about psycopaths at a website:

    Here is a long shot... when I was looking at the Doe Network pages there is an unidentified woman found in Georgia... my reaction upon seeing the sketch was "There's Jackie".

    http://www.doenetwork.us/cases/483ufga.html

    There is very little information about the unidentified woman. Union City, Georgia is appoximately 8 hours driving time away... so its possible.

    I have previously exchanged PMs with a contact at FindJackieMarkham and they requested contact on anything I might find, so I've emailed them.

    No I haven't but Lauren (Monkalup) on the Used to be Doe site said she'd call it in. I'm awaiting an update.

    While this new discovery is in it's early stages, LE is leaning towards Markham for an ID.

    April 16, 2009
    http://www.news4jax.com/news/19193490/detail.html

    <snip>

    "Detectives said they think they know how the woman was killed, but they would not release that information because they said it's too important to their investigation. However, detectives did reveal that they have requested Jacquelyn Markham's dental records to see if they match.
    The 52-year-old mother and grandmother disappeared from her Callahan home almost nine years ago."

    21 April 09


    A forensic anthropologist has ruled out that human remains found at a Nassau County hunt club earlier this month belonged to a Callahan woman who disappeared nearly nine years ago, but he still has not identified the remains or determined how the person died.

    <snip>

    Detectives sent dental records of the missing 52-year-old woman, Jacquelyn Markham, but they did not match.

    This case was on Disappeared last night on IDNetwork

    I wonder if she was declared legally dead and that's why the obituary.

    Saw the ID Disappeared show last night.... my comments:
    Strange that they used a voice stress kind of lie detector instead of the more traditional kind.
    Too bad they left the house for so long before processing it.
    No mention was made if they took tire impressions of the tracks found in the back yard, and if they did, did they check any vehicles.
    Accounts about boyfriend being very possessive and not letting go when she's about to seek something new make him look like a suspect.
    What boyfriend said doesn't match his actions as described by others on the show.

    Definitely an odd case. If what the "obsessed/couldn't get the hint" boyfriend said was true, I believe an intruder was in the house with her and she was told to say something to make sure he didn't come over. What she said though, about her older friend being there and drunk, may have been a way to get him to come help her. She knew he was the jealous type. I'm not convinced he had nothing to do with it.
