The two missing girls , his daughters, were with him and were recovered safe.
The case began when the Leavenworth County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call around 1:16 p.m. in the 14900 block of Hillside, where responding deputies located two deceased juvenile males in a residence and two girls missing.
The girls’ father, Donny Jackson, was suspected in the abduction. He is also the father of the deceased boys.
