ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - NewsChannel 5 has learned that the missing mother found dead in the trunk of her car was shot in the head.
Ebony Jackson's 2004 Mitsubishi Galant was found Tuesday around 10 a.m. in the 4400 block of Elmbank Avenue.
Jackson's 3-month-old baby was discovered in the hallway of the Hickory Trace Apartment building in the 3500 block of Dehart Place on the night of Friday, January 4.
A man from Oklahoma claiming to be the father of the baby said Ebony Jackson left with their son and was headed to Missouri. That man came to St. Louis earlier this week to take a paternity test, the results of which are still pending.
