Caddo Sheriff's deputies arrested Eddie Jackson, 40, for allegedly kidnapping Tracy Winslow, 30, outside of her Oil City apartment on Sunday night. Winslow has not been seen or heard from since late that night.
Caddo Sheriff's Office spokesperson, Cindy Chadwick told us that inconsistent statements that Jackson made during interviews with detectives, other witness statements and evidence that detectives have collected during the investigation led them to obtaining an arrest warrant for him. Deputies arrested Jackson without incident at about 10:30 p.m. Tuesday night while he was driving north on Hwy. 1 near Oil City. Authorities say that Jackson is not fully cooperating with detectives and is not providing any information about the whereabouts of Winslow as of Wednesday afternoon.
Authorities say that Jackson and Winslow recently ended a relationship lasting nearly fifteen years. "They have three children together and had recently separated," Chadwick said. "They've been apart for about three months." Chadwick added that detectives believe that Winslow had since begun a relationship with somebody else.
Around 2:30 a.m. on Monday, Winslow's silver 2006 Dodge Charger was found abandoned and burned along Kuhn's Road near North Lakeshore Drive in the northern part of Caddo Parish. Detectives have focused their search in this area and near her home in Oil City.
Chadwick said that they have searched the area near Kuhn's Rd. on foot and with K-9 units. They've also searched the area around her home for any evidence that could lead them to Winslow. Authorities are still hoping for the best at this point. "We hope that we can bring a mother home to her children and give this family what they're looking for," said Chadwick.
Detectives are asking for any tips from witnesses who may know something regarding this case. They are following up on all tips that lead them to possible locations of Winslow. If you have any information about this case, you are urged to call the Caddo Sheriff's Office at (318) 675-2170 or Crime Stoppers at (318) 673-7373.
