An APB that started in Kansas after two boys were found dead and two young girls were missing from a home in Leavenworth County ended with an arrest on I-40 in Oklahoma. Police said Donny Jackson, 40, killed two boys and kidnapped his daughters, Nora, 7, and Jackson, 3.
Later in the evening, Oklahoma State Troopers overheard Beckham County broadcasting a vehicle matching the description of the amber alert vehicle, getting fuel at the 26 mm on I-40. Two troopers immediately headed to the gas station.
“A short time later, Beckham County got a call from a truck driver that the vehicle was westbound at mile marker 7,” the OKSP said in a statement. “One of our Port of Entry officers was at exit 7 and observed the vehicle go by. He got in behind the vehicle and activated his emergency lights. The vehicle kept driving and took exit 5 and stopped. The officer gave the driver commands to exit the vehicle and he did so. Within 2 minutes of the stop, troopers and Beckham County deputies arrived and assisted in taking 40 year old Donny Jackson into custody.
His 2 children that were with him are safe. Great job to everyone involved.”
