A 19-year-old Michigan girl missing since Saturday has been found stabbed to death and dumped in a river the day after her abusive ex-boyfriend was due to be sent to jail.
The body of Kaley Brooks was spotted trapped beneath the ice in the river on Christmas Eve, a few days after her ex-boyfriend, Nicholas Jackson, was found dead after apparently shooting himself.
Several stab wounds were found on Kaley and blood stains believed to be from her were discovered in a car belonging to Jackson.
Jackson, 18, was found dead on Sunday. Police say he had assaulted Kaley in October, and had been due to be sentenced to prison on Monday.
According to WILX10, after the aggravated assault in October he had been ordered to stay away from Kaley, who had suffered extensive injuries.
The college student was last seen on Saturday afternoon when Jackson picked her up from the McDonald’s drive-thru where she worked.
