That suspect was Gabe’s ex boyfriend, 27 year old Marshall Curtis Jones, who was killed in Kent, Washington during the execution of a search warrant. The warrant was issued for Jones on June 1, who was charged with the murder of Gabe.
According to the press release, after Oakley and Antioch police issued the arrest warrant it was given to the Seattle Police Department, the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office, and the United States Marshals Service. During the execution of the warrant, Marshals fired at Jones, killing him, after he “produced a knife and charged at officers.”
Jones was the last person to see Alexis Gabe before she disappeared on January 26, 2022, who was last seen with him at his home on Benntree Way in Antioch, California around 9:00 pm.
Authorities provided details during a news conference Thursday, saying they had enough evidence to show that Alexis Gabe was murdered, and that her former boyfriend, Marshall Curtis Jones, was responsible.
Police also have their eyes on another person of interest, one of the suspect’s family members, who may have played a role in the cover up.
