A search for a missing San Diego woman turned up the suspected remains of Julia Jacobson and her dog in Joshua Tree National Park.

SAN DIEGO WOMAN FOUND BURIED IN JOSHUA TREE NATIONAL PARK

Jacobson was thought to have been killed and buried out in the desert, and human remains were found in a shallow grave in the “Cactus City” area south of the park. Authorities had been searching a 6-square-mile area since Wednesday after interviewing Jaconbson’s ex-husband Dalen Ware. Ware was arrested on Oct. 13 on suspicion of murder and is still currently in custody.

Jacobson, 37, was last seen at a 7-Eleven shop in San Diego on Sept. 2. She texted a friend that she was in the Palm Springs area, and that was the last anyone heard from her. Her car was found the following morning not far from her home. Evidence in the vehicle confirmed that Jacobson was killed. Detective Melissa Ramirez believes Jacobson died a “violent” death.

Jacobson worked at 7-Eleven and was a retired army captain. She and Ware divorced in 2015 and Ramirez shared that their relationship had been “tumultuous,” according to family and friends.
