The woman who was stabbed to death while her children were also in their Lynwood house, and the husband who wielded the knife and then shot and killed himself, were publicly identified Sunday by the Coroner’s Office.
The victims were identified as Brooke Jackson, 40, and Dennis Jackson, 47, according to the coroner’s office.
The deaths were reported about 8:45 a.m. Friday in the 4200 block of Carlin Avenue, according to the Sheriff’s Information Bureau.
When deputies responded to the scene to investigate a medical emergency call, they found Brooke Jackson with multiple upper-body stab wounds. She was pronounced dead at the scene, sheriff’s Deputy Morgan Arteaga said.
They also found Dennis Jackson with a gunshot wound to his upper body. He, too, was pronounced dead at the scene, Arteaga said.
“The preliminary investigation revealed that the male and female were married with two juvenile children, a 12 year old male, and an 11 year old female,” Arteaga said. “It appears that the male, who is being classified as the suspect, stabbed the female victim to death, before shooting himself.”
The children were at the location when the deadly violence occurred, the deputy said.
