Brittany A. Ellis, 19

MN, Brooklyn Center

March 14, 2010

Relando Jackson’s mother called 911 because her son reported to her there was a suicidal woman he believed to be dead near Shingle Creek in Brooklyn Center. Police met Jackson and he took them to the bank of Shingle Creek where they found the body of Brittany.

Jackson and Brittany Ellis had been romantically involved for about two years. Jackson claims they were walking on the bridge and they began to argue. He claimed that they slapped each other, he struck her, and he left her crying. After he went home, Jackson said he came back to the creek and found Brittany with her face in the water.

The medical examiner found the cause of death to be complex homicidal violence including contusions, abrasions, strangulation, and blunt force head injuries.

Jackson has been charged with second degree murder.
