Jacqueline Brown and her coworkers went out on July 12th, 1985 to cash their paychecks and celebrate payday with some drinks. Instead, the night ended in tragedy when residents in another part of town were awoken to find Jacqueline shot and begging for help. And while first responders may not have been able to save her, detectives are dedicated to finding her killer… who may have been someone she knew.
If you have any tips or remember someone acting suspicious around or after Jackie’s death, please call and let detectives know. No lead is too small. Call the Dayton Police Department cold case tip line at 937-333-7109.
