Over the last three months, investigators from multiple law enforcement agencies have worked tirelessly on the case of Joshua Jackson and Derrick Ruff, reported missing in December 2018.
Our hopes were to find the two men alive. Unfortunately, on Sunday, March 17, 2019, the bodies of Joshua Jackson and Derrick Ruff were located in Gwinnett County. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of the two men.
Investigators from the Athens-Clarke County Police Department, Athens FBI Safe Streets, Atlanta FBI Safe Streets, Gwinnett County Police Department, Gwinnett County District Attorney’s Office, and the Department of Corrections, with the assistance of Alpha Team K9 Search and Rescue, searched approximately 100 acres in Gwinnett County and located the bodies.
The Gwinnett County Police Department is working this case as a
Homicide. Any questions concerning the Homicide investigation should be
directed to the Gwinnett County Police Department. The Athens-Clarke County
Police Department will continue to assist Gwinnett County in their investigation.
