    Portland Oregon Police Cold Case File

    On March 23, 1983, a citizen was walking along the western edge of Overlook Park at approximately 5 p.m., when he looked over the steep embankment between N Greeley Avenue and the park when he discovered what appeared to be a woman’s body. The police were called and discovered the victim, 23 year-old African-American female, Essie Jackson, had been deceased for some time. An autopsy revealed that she died as the result of being strangled.

    Essie Jackson was the mother of a young child at the time of her death. It was reported that she was an active prostitute. Essie was last seen on February 12th at approximately 10:30 pm near the intersection of NE Union (now Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard) and Failing Street.

    Essie is listed on this site as a possible victim of Gary Ridgway. However, it's noted that Green River detectives have never commented on Essie's case since the time of the murder. This new article doesn't mention any connection between Essie and Ridgway.

    Big break in the homicide case of Essie Jackson as well as three other victims. One man tied to four murders.
