Remains of Missing Army Veteran, Dog Found in Shallow Grave

Samuel Chamberlaib, Fox News, December 3, 2017

Searchers recovered the bodies of a missing Army veteran and her dog in the southern California desert Friday, the woman’s brother told a local news station.

Fox 5 San Diego reported that the remains of Julia Jacobson and her box terrier, Boogie, were found in rural Riverside County. Ontario, Calif. police said a cadaver dog helped discover the shallow grave containing the bodies just south of Interstate 10.


Jacobson’s ex-husband, Dalen Ware, was arrested at his home in Phoenix on Oct. 13 and faces a murder charge. Ware’s attorney told The San Diego Union-Tribune in an email that he showed investigators “the place he had buried” Jacobson without the promise of a plea bargain.


Jacobson served two tours of duty in Iraq and was employed at a 7-Eleven corporate office.
