Jennifer Jackson Playboy Profile
Westlake, OH (The Weekly Vice) – Jennifer Lyn Jackson, a 40-year-old former Playboy Playmate was found dead in her home after an apparent heroin overdose.
According to Westlake police, Jackson was found dead by her husband in their Westlake trailer home.
Investigators say Jackson appears to have died of a heroin overdose.
In the April 1989 Playboy article she was featured in, Jackson stated that her ambition was to “follow the golden road to success”.
Apparently, she went the wrong way because she had several run-ins with the law before her death, including charges for drunk-driving, disorderly conduct stemming from an intoxicated domestic disturbance in her home, and a charge of receiving stolen property that was later dropped when the victim failed to appear in court.
At one point, Jackson was arrested four times in a period of five years, and was ordered to undergo drug and alcohol treatment.
Police are now investigating who supplied Jackson with the drugs and believe it was someone close to the family
Jackson also had a history of drug abuse. Toxicology tests will be performed to determined whether or not Jackson died of a drug overdose. There are no obvious signs of foul play.
Perhaps she could have been helped by a good heroin treatment center.
