PULASKI COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — Remains found in Pulaski County have been positively identified as missing Richmond mother Ella Jackson.

The Richmond Police Department says Jackson's remains were discovered on Wednesday, April 29. Dental records were used to positively identify her from the Kentucky State Medical Examiner's Office.

Jackson's remains were found last week by a mushroom hunter near the McCreary County line on Wednesday, April 29. Glenn Jackson, Ella's husband, was charged with her murder on April 24. He is also charged with an additional count of tampering with physical evidence and abuse of a corpse.

Ella Jackson went missing in October of last year. Investigators say a significant amount of blood was found in the trunk of Glenn Jackson's car that was later proven to be Ella's.

Glenn Jackson remains behind bars in the Madison County detention center where he awaits a preliminary hearing.

The Pulaski County Sheriff's Office are meeting with investigators from the Richmond Police Department Tuesday to talk about the investigation. They will also hand over evidence collected from the scene where the remains were located.

The Richmond Police Department is still investigating Jackson's death. The Pulaski County Sheriff's Office and Coroner Clyde Strunk will continue to work with police in their investigation.
