The FBI's Richmond Field Office is seeking assistance to identify additional possible victims of Walter "Leo" Jackson, Sr., who died while serving a prison sentence in Ohio, in March 2018, for charges related to kidnapping. 

Jackson was recently identified through DNA as the person responsible for the murders of Laura “Lollie” Winans and Julianne “Julie” Williams on May 24, 1996, in the Shenandoah National Park in Virginia. The FBI will continue to work with law enforcement partners to determine if Jackson is responsible for other unsolved crimes. 

Jackson, who went by the name “Leo”, had a lengthy criminal history, including kidnapping, rapes, and assaults. Jackson, a residential painter by trade, was also an avid hiker. At the time of Lollie and Julie’s murders, he may have been driving a 1984 Chestnut Brown AMC Eagle 30. Jackson later drove a 1979 Ford Econoline 250 van. Jackson was known to use temporary tags, alter license plates, and frequently change vehicles. 

The Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections provided the following timeline of when Jackson was incarcerated. Jackson would be excluded as a possible suspect for any unsolved crimes that occurred during this time period. 

January 1984 through February 1989 (Charged in Geauga County, Ohio) 

May 1994 through September 1994 (Charged in Cuyahoga County, Ohio) 

August 2000 through May 2007 (Charged in Cuyahoga County, Ohio) 

May 2012 until his death in March 2018 (Charged in Cuyahoga County, Ohio)
