A Tragic Ending

Jackie Watts (sometimes known as Jacqueline Watts), is a 33-year-old Indianapolis, Indiana woman who was found dead on a river sandbar. Watts, who was married, frequently posted photos on Facebook with her husband, Michael, and her pets. Jackie was known for her love of animals, and many of her photos show her with her dogs, a rabbit, and outdoors, such as boating. Watts was found dead after she disappeared after dropping her pets off at her parents’ house before a trip to the airport. Watts was supposed to go with her husband to the airport for a trip to Washington D.C., her sister-in-law said, but she disappeared without explanation.

Was the Jackie Galloway murder inspired by Postmortem?


Under cover of night in Richmond, Virginia, a monster strikes, leaving a gruesome trail of stranglings that has paralyzed the city. Medical examiner Kay Scarpetta suspects the worst: a deliberate campaign by a brilliant serial killer whose signature offers precious few clues. With an unerring eye, she calls on the latest advances in forensic research to unmask the madman. But this investigation will test Kay like no other, because it’s being sabotaged from within—and someone wants her dead.

    Some interesting facts about Postmortum and Patricia Cornwell:

  • Postmortem (Kay Scarpetta) is an award-winning novel and it launched Patricia Cornwell’s career.
  • Postmortem is based on Richmond’s real-life “South Side Strangler” case.
  • Patricia Cornwell is a former reporter and has worked in a medical examiner’s office.

Jackie Galloway was brutally murdered in 1991

People Magazine Investigates looks into the brutal murder of Jackie Galloway.

Back in 1991 a friend of Galloway arrived at her apartment to take her for lunch and then a trip to the dentist.

However, he found her door open and inside was some uneaten food, her hair straighteners still switch on and her hand bag lying on the bed. All very unusual for a woman who too pride in her appearance and home. Plus, she was in a dispute with her landlord over his unannounced visits, so leaving her door open was very peculiar.

Sadly her body found 10 miles away wrapped up in a blanket and tied up. She had ties in some places where bounds would not be needed just to restrain her and they seemed very tight. This led police to suspect

Inside Jackie Galloway’s Murder Investigation on People Magazine …

The story of Jackie Galloway — who suddenly disappeared in 1991 from her apartment in Sarasota, Florida — is equally a mystery and tragedy: While police quickly discovered her body, bound and bloody, it took them much longer to locate her killer and his motive.

The investigation, which is the focus of the next episode of People Magazine Investigates airing Monday, Nov. 21, on Investigation Discovery, featured a shifting cast of possible suspects; evidence of horrific violence; a speculative link to the Gainesville Ripper serial killer, who murdered college students not far away; and a curious connection to the Patricia Cornwell thriller Postmortem about a killer called “Mr. Nobody.”

And at the center of it all was Galloway, a social butterfly who fell victim to what one close friend calls “pure evil.”
