CACTUS CITY, Calif.
— California law enforcement officials on Friday found in a shallow grave the bodies of a missing U.S. Army veteran and her beloved dog, both of whom had been missing since Labor Day weekend.
The bodies of Julia Beth Jacobson, a 37-year-old retired Army captain, and her Wheaten terrier, Boogie, were found in the desert in Cactus City, an unincorporated community near Interstate 10 in Riverside County, south of Joshua Tree National Park. Ontario police officials said the remains were found with the help of a cadaver dog.
They were also found with the cooperation of Jacobson’s ex-husband, Dalen Larry Ware, who was arrested on suspicion of murder Oct. 13 at his home in Laveen, Arizona. Ware, 39, is being held in lieu of $1 million bail in the San Bernardino County Jail.
Jacobson and Boogie were found during the third day
