Mom pleads for answers in son’s death

Betty Jackson wants to know who killed her son and why.
“We really want to know what happened to him, “ Jackson said. “It is hard to heal knowing that someone out here knows something and is not saying anything. It hurts because we don’t know the who or the what.”
Dorien Daymon Jackson, 18, went missing on Jan. 10 after leaving his home on Tangle Lane in High Point. He was last seen on Jan. 10, after leaving a friend’s home on Penny Road.
Police searched for him for weeks before his body was discovered on March 3 in Lake Townsend in Greensboro. An autopsy shows that he was shot in the back of the neck and that his death was ruled a homicide.
Betty Jackson said she was hoping someone would have come forward with some information by now.
“We haven’t heard anything from anyone. We were hoping that someone would have said something,” Jackson said. “I believe that someone out there has to know something, and I ask that they let us know, or let the police know what they heard or saw.”
Despite numerous canvass attempts of the area by friends, family and police, there are still no leads in the investigation as to who may have killed Dorien or how he got to Greensboro.
Susan Danielsen, public information officer for the Greensboro Police Department, said that they do not have anything new on the case, although it’s still active.
“We have not identified a person of interest yet,” Danielsen said. “We are still looking and still encouraging anybody who knows something to give us a call.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact Crimestoppers at (336) 373-1000 or by calling Greensboro Police Department at (336) 373-2222.
