Description

WHY THE FOUNDATION WAS FORMED?

Sherri Jackson was a beautiful woman. Sherri was caught in a net, with no were to run, too embarrassed and ashamed to get help from others. She tried to get out, to get away on her own. He killed her, buried her in the backyard of his mother's house and for 19 months hid her from everyone who loved her. In part of a plea bargain, Decarlo Bennett agreed to tell the District Attorney office where he buried her body. He was summons to come out and tell the correct location to dig and find Sherri's remains. We recovered the remains of Sherri on June 26, 2008 about 1:30pm, in the backyard of her estranged boyfriend's home. She was only 27 years old and had a whole life ahead of her.
